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?

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 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
