Political Culture and the Fight for Social Justice #StopBarr

As this edition of Free Culture Radio was being recorded, the US Senate Judiciary Committee was considering the nomination of William Barr to be the next US Attorney General. He’s a horrible nominee, for the sake of this country he should be rejected, and on this edition of Free Culture Radio we’re going to hear why.

In December 2018, a group of 75 civil rights, religious, and progressive organizations sent a letter to the US Senate expressing serious concerns about Barr’s nomination. On January Tenth, the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights held a news conference with representatives from some of those organizations to discuss Barr’s record and to call on the Senate to reject his nomination. I was fortunate enough to be on that call. On this edition of Free Culture Radio, we hear some of that audio.
