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.

In Doubt: the Psychology of the Criminal Justice Process

Hosts Cecil Prescod and Celeste Carey interview professor Dan Simon about his book In Doubt: The Psychology of the Criminal Justice Process. Simon is Professor of Law and Psychology at the University of Southern California.

The criminal justice process is unavoidably human.

On October 5, Cecil and Celeste speak with Bill Fletcher, Jr. and Fernando Gapasin, authors of "Solidarity Divided: The Crisis in Organized Labor and A New Path Toward Social Justice".

Solidarity Divided is a critical examination of labor's current crisis and a plan for a bold new way forward into the 21st century. Bill Fletcher and Fernando Gapasin, longtime union insiders whose experiences as activists of color grant them a unique vantage on the problems now facing U. S. labor, offer a mix of history and probing analysis.  Ultimately calling for a wide-ranging re-examination of the ideological and structural underpinnings of today's labor movement, this is essentila reading for understanding how the battle for social justice can be fought and won. newunionism.wordpress.com/2009/07/21/solidarity-divided-the-crisis-in-organized-labor-and-a-new-path-toward-social-justice/

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
