Fifty years after King was assassinated, we review King's lesser known legacy and how it is used against activists today.
Guest Host: Jennifer Golbeck
However you plan to cast your vote on election day, there’s no question that this year’s contest has been a divisive one. Anxiety and tension are running high and have caused rifts in families and amongst friends who have differing views on who is most fit to lead the country. The day after the elections, the Right Rev. Mariann Edgar Budde, bishop of the Episcopal diocese of Washington, will preside over a day of services meant to move toward healing at Washington’s National Cathedral. We talk with Budde about the tone and tenor of this year’s elections and how to bring people back together once they’re over.
- Mariann Edgar Budde Bishop of the Washington Diocese of the Episcopal Church.
