The Civil Rights Movement to Black Lives Matter: Where Do We Go From Here?

In this episode, veteran civil rights activist and Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton reflects on the intersection of the Black Lives Matter movement and the three great civil rights acts of the 1960’s. Despite those changes, Congresswoman Norton says the vestiges of racism remains embedded in American life. Yet she believes this new, young multicultural generation sees race differently and will demand greater change, just as social justice crusaders fought for over 60 years ago.

Also, The Honorable Chokwe Antar Lumumba is making it his mission to transform the city of Jackson, Mississippi into “the most radical city on the planet.” Jackson is a city with a rich American history, but it’s also plagued by persistent poverty, health disparities, confederate symbols and generations of racist sentiments. By advocating for social and economic change, Mayor Lumumba is determined to transform this 85% African American city into a model of economic optimism.
