Music Revolution, Everett Potter’s Travel Report and ecofashion

Today World Footprints will follow the path of a music revolution on two coasts, we’ll explore all things travel with travel journalist Everett Potter and we’ll visit an eco-fashion boutique.

Known as the mother of Afro-Beat, music legend Sandra Iszadore has lent her voice to advance humanitarian causes.  As a civil rights activist Sandra also helped shape the music and the message of Africa’s revolutionary voice Fela Anikulapo Kuti.  Sandra’s influence was so profound that she has been immortalized in Fela’s autobiography and Broadway hit, Fela!  Sandra continues to fight for the human rights of others with her mic. 

We’ll chat about all things travel with travel journalist Everett Potter.  Everett is the editor and publisher of Everett Potter’s Travel Report—an online newsletter that the Wall Street Journal calls “a source for finding great travel values”.  Everett has been traveling professionally for over 2 decades and has written for a number of top travel publications in the country.   Where is Everett Potter off to next?  Tune in to find out.

Eco-fashion has come a long way since the 1990s and the trend is growing beyond just being the flavor of the month.  Boutique shops that promote sustainable fashion are now doing more than just green window dressings and we found such a store in Washington, DC.  Carbon DC is an upscale boutique that offers sustainable clothing, shoes and accessories for men and women that are produced by independent designers.  Katherine Limon, owner of Carbon DC, joins us to dispel the perception that sustainable fashion is just a burlap bag wrapped with a rope. (Note: Carbon DC is no longer open.)
