5.31.20- Kerner Commission, Discrimination & Voting Suppression
This week on Generation Justice we learned from former U.S Senator Fred Harris, the last remaining member of the Kerner Commission, established by President Lyndon Johnson to investigate the causes of social unrest of 1967.
We will also share a debate from NPR’s All things Considered about the discrimination black men face in public spaces. This segment was produced by long-time GJ member Jason Fuller… and a special interview conducted by our good friends at “CounterSpin” about voting suppression in America.
All of this tonight 5/31 on 89.9 KUNM at 7:00pm or stream on KUNM.org!
