50th Anniversary of the March on Washington: Why Are We Still Marching?

50th Anniversary of the March on Washington: Why Are We Still Marching?

This week marks the fiftieth anniversary of the historic March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.  On a hot August day in 1963 over 200,000 people gathered on the Washington Mall to declare their commitment to social and economic justice and demand the federal government take action to guarantee the civil rights of all citizens.

As Oregonians join people throughout the nation to commemorate this event, we pause and ask, why are the gains of the civil rights movement being dismantled?  What is the clarion call to justice for our generation?  What lessons can we learn from the victories and failures of the civil right struggles of the 1950s and 1960s?

Those Damned Immigrants: America's Hysteria over Undocumented Immigration.

Host Celeste Carey interviews Ediberto Román: author of Those Damned Immigrants: America's Hysteria over Undocumented Immigration.

In Those Damned Immigrants, Ediberto Román takes on critics of Latina/o immigration, drawing on empirical evidence to refute charges of links between immigration and crime, economic downfall, and a weakening of Anglo culture. Román utilizes government statistics, economic data, historical records, and social science research to provide a counter-narrative to what he argues is a largely one-sided public discourse on Latino/a immigration.

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Sabine Heinlein about her book "Among Murderers: Life After Prison."

What is it like for a convicted murderer who has spent decades behind bars to suddenly find himself released into a world he barely recognizes? What is it like to start over from nothing? How does it feel to bear the shame of having killed someone? What constitutes successful rehabilitation? How does someone face the prospect of rejoining society with the guilt and shame of having taken taken another person’s life.

Declaration of Independence: A hindrance or roadmap for a more democratic society?

In 1776 a group of men debated and signed a document which listed their greivances with the King of England  and the reasons why they declared independence from Great Britiain.  As the United States of America prepares to observes the 237th anniversary of that event, do you think that our government lives up to its ideals? Is it time, in the words of the Declaration of Independence, for "the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness"?  Is the US government securing or preventing the  inalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for the inhabitants of its land?

Barack Obama’s historic presidency has re-inserted mixed race into the national conversation.

My error

Hi, Cecil, I called in to your fine program this morning to give the announcement about Imam Mamadou Toure's presentation at the Quaker Meetinghouse. Apparently I gave the wrong date: the correct date is Friday, January 25. I would greatly appreciate it if you could give that date on next week's program, I'm sorry to have confused things.
Peace, Jim Metcalfe
