50th Anniversary of the March on Washington: Why Are We Still Marching?
50th Anniversary of the March on Washington: Why Are We Still Marching?

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?

Those Damned Immigrants: America's Hysteria over Undocumented Immigration.

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 Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Sabine Heinlein about her book "Among Murderers: Life After Prison."

What is it like for a convicted murderer who has spent decades behind bars to suddenly find himself released into a world he barely recognizes? What is it like to start over from nothing? How does it feel to bear the shame of having killed someone? What constitutes successful rehabilitation? How does someone face the prospect of rejoining society with the guilt and shame of having taken taken another person’s life.

Hosts Cecil and Celeste speak with Kathy Kelly, co-coordinator of Voices for Creative Nonviolence. The group is organizing with other secular and faith-based groups "Camp Hope: Countdown to Change" in Chicago, four blocks from Obama's residence there. The camp begins on New Year's Day and continues to Dr. Martin Luther King Day. Kelly says "Large lobbying groups, including some of the large corporations, are pushing Obama around the clock to preserve the status quo, wage war and provide for unbridled greed. What we're asking is that the money spent on the military be spent instead on soluble problems such as lack of healthcare."

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
