Some of My Best Friends Are Black: The Strange Story of Integration in America

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Tanner Colby, author of "SOME OF MY BEST FRIENDS ARE BLACK: The Strange Story of Integration in America," one white man’s unflinching exploration of Jim Crow’s legacy and what it will take to see that legacy undone.

So Rich, So Poor - Why It's So Hard to End Poverty in America

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Peter Edelman, author of the new book So Rich, So Poor: Why It's So Hard to End Poverty in America. The income-level disparity in this country is now wider than at any point since the Great Depression. How can some be so rich, while others are so poor? According to Edelman, we have taken important positive steps without which 25 to 30 million more people would be poor, but poverty fluctuates with the business cycle. The structure of today’s economy has stultified wage growth for half of America’s workers—with even worse results at the bottom and for people of color—while bestowing billions on those at the top.

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
