Interview with F. Michael Higginbotham, author, Ghost of Jim Crow

When America inaugurated its first African American president, in 2009, many wondered if the country had finally become a "post-racial" society. Was this the dawning of a new era, in which America, a nation nearly severed in half by slavery, and whose racial fault lines are arguably among its most enduring traits, would at last move beyond race with the election of Barack Hussein Obama? In Ghosts of Jim Crow, F. Michael Higginbotham convincingly argues that America remains far away from that imagined utopia. Indeed, the shadows of Jim Crow era laws and attitudes continue to perpetuate insidious, systemic prejudice and racism in the 21st century.

10 years gone: Abe and Joe survey the wreckage of the Iraq War.

Weapons of mass destruction. Regime change. Shock and awe. 9/11. Freedom fries. A wink, a nod, and a lie -- and all of a sudden, the United States invades a country that never attacked us. Ten years after the War in Iraq began, Abe and Joe look back at the surreal runup to the 2003 invasion, the torture and plunder of the war itself, and its lingering aftermath.

Interview with S. Brian Wilson author Blood on the Tracks

"We are not worth more. They are not less" This is the mantra of S. Brian Wilson and the theme that runs throughout his compelling psychohistorical memoir. Wilson's story begins in small-town, rural America, where he grew up as a "Commie-hating,baseball-loving Baptist." moves though life-changing experiences in Viet Nam, Nicaragua, and elsewhere, and culminates with his commitment to a localized, sustainable lifestyle.
