Short Description: 
Stand your ground, America. Abe and Joe take on the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case.

In America, it seems, one can gun down a fellow citizen if one feels threatened. Or if one thinks the fellow citizen is a tad bit dark-skinned to be in one's neighborhood. Or carrying some dime-store candy.

Trayvon Martin's death at the hands of George Zimmerman was an entirely preventable tragedy. Abe and Joe discuss the details of the case, the fallout, and the prevalence of pernicious "stand your ground" laws.

50th Anniversary of the March on Washington

Join Sharon Gary Smith, Executive Director, of McKenzie River Gathering Foundation (MRG) and Gahlena Avidan, Retired Community Activist and former member of the African American Advisory Committee to Portland Police Bureau as we discuss the marathon mind-set required in seeking justice for African Americans and others over the last 50 years and into the future. The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom took place in Washington, D.C., on August 28, 1963. Attended by some 250,000 people, it was the largest demonstration ever seen in the nation's capital, and one of the first to have extensive television coverage. 1963 was noted for racial unrest and civil rights demonstrations.
