Rinku Sen: Race and Obama's first 100 days

Last week, President Obama reached his first 100 days in office, triggering a media flurry of speculation about how well he's doing. Communities of color - already hurting before the lastest round of troubles - have been measuring up the new president as well. Is President Obama pushing to create justice for all or is he too bogged down in the legacy of his predecessor? What should we be doing to push the president down the path of racial equity?

Air date: 
04/30/2009

all this month we have been exploring aspects of mental and emotional healing and ways to cope in this world...  tonight we focused on the suicides of carl joseph walker hoover and jaheem harrera, two 11 year olds who were taunted and assaulted to the point where they felt they needed to take their own lives... 

we explored the idea of social perceptions in relation to peer-to-peer abuse (and how these perceptions contribute to the perpetuation of the cycle of violence); how the school system may or may not be intervening in ways which assist children being abused by their peers and/or adults; and, how communities can connect and heal in these situations.
