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

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.

Hosts Cecil and Celeste speak with Bruce Jacobs, author of Race Manners about how to talk to each other in this new era of race relations. RACE MANNERS is a weapon for all people of good will. It encourages and equips people to honestly confront racial assumptions, misunderstandings and hostilities in everyday life, and it breaks down the workings of racial prejudice in ways we can all understand. At a time when the ostensible "War On Terror" has spawned malevolence and misinformation, RACE MANNERS is an antidote to the politics of fear.

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
