Would Ho Chi Minh have liked Clinton's trip?

Irvine -- How would Ho Chi Minh have viewed Clinton's recent trip to Vietnam?

Subversity, a KUCI public affairs program, this afternoon features a chat with two progressive observers of the cultural politics scene, Carol Brightman and Floyd Webb, on Ho Chi Minh and his influence today in the wake of Clinton's trip to Vietnam last week.

Brightman was editor of the anti-war Viet-Report, and most recently the author of a review ("Who was Ho Chi Minh?") in the Los Angeles Times (October 8, 2000) of a new book on Ho Chi Minh's life. She is the author of a book on the Vietnam War era and the Grateful Dead, "Sweet Chaos: The Grateful Dead's American Adventure," and other works including several on Mary McCarthy. More on Brightman can be found in an AP story in South Coast Today, April 12, 1999:

Webb is founder of Blacklight Festival of International Black Cinema, currently working on a project documenting Ho Chi Minh's stay in Harlem earlier in the century. He is currently creative director at e22 Digital ( He recently produced the 3-D annimation effects for a Wesley Snipes, Amen Ra Films-produced documentary on Egypt, and an enhanced CD project for the Thrill Jockey Record Jazz group, 8 Bold Souls.

The show airs from 5-6 p.m. today (November 22) on KUCI, 88.9 fm in Orange County, Calif., and is Web-cast simultaneously via

Subversity will be preceded by Alternative News, from 4-5 p.m., which will also focus on Clinton's trip, including audio from his talk at Hanoi National University.
