Muslim-American 9/11 First Responder Overlooked by Memorial

Wednesday, January 04, 2012

For his bravery on 9/11, first-responder Mohammad Salman Hamdani was cited in the Patriot Act as an example of Muslim-American valor. After the body of the 23-year-old police cadet was found in the wreckage of the north tower, the New York City Police Department declared him a hero and buried him with full honors. But visitors to the September 11th Memorial in lower Manhattan will not find his name among the list of first-responders. Instead, Hamdani's name appears in a section of the memorial for people who only had a lose connection to the tragic events of that day.

Dana Priest on Top Secret America

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

Award-winning reporter Dana Priest investigates the top-secret world that the government created in response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks. In Top Secret America: The Rise of the New American Security State, she writes that it has become so enormous, so unwieldy, and so secretive that no one knows how much money it costs, how many people it employs or exactly how many agencies duplicate work being done elsewhere. The system put in place to keep the United States safe may be putting us in greater danger.

Responsorium 9/11

Sunday, September 11, 2011

Listen to music written in response to the 9/11 attacks.  Pulitzer Prize-winning composers Steve Reich and John Adams each used an almost documentary approach to the events of 9/11; we’ll hear excerpts from both.  Michael Gordon’s “The Sad Park” is built on recordings of young children in the playground on Chambers Street, two blocks from the World Financial Center, describing that morning.  And Robert Moran’s new “Trinity Requiem” was written for the nearby Trinity Church choir.  We’ll hear excerpts from those pieces as well on this New Sounds.

Bach: Solace and Inspiration

Sunday, September 11, 2011

As the intense emergency of the 9/11 attacks subsided, David Garland turned to the music of 18th Century German composer Johann Sebastian Bach. Moved by Bach's deep emotion, the beauty of Bach's musical logic, and the profound way Bach's music is able to express the truths and ideals of humanity, Garland created "Bach: Solace and Inspiration," to inaugurate WNYC's return to music programming on September 23, 2001. For this tenth anniversary of 9/11, Garland has assembled highlights from the original program.
