Featured Guests:

  1. Frank Clemente, executive director of Americans for Tax Fairness, will provide analysis of the Republican tax reform plans — both the House and Senate versions that have recently been passed by the GOP majority, and the impact of these policies on working families, the U.S. economy — as well as ATF’s current campaign to defeat the legislation before it’s signed into law.
  2. Noliwe Rooks, director of American studies at Cornell University, author of the new book, “Cutting School: Privatization, Segregation, and the End of Public Education,” which traces a path through pre-Civil War America, the Reconstruction South and 20th century “segregation academies,” busing conflicts and “white flight.” Rooks contends that if the American Dream is to have any meaning to communities of color, as well as the larger project of democracy, then integrated education remains vital.
  3. Center for Media Justice Organizing Director Steven Renderos discusses his group’s campaign to stop the Trump administration FCC’s plan to repeal net neutrality — and that action’s negative impact on Internet freedom and the ability of marginalized citizens to communicate.
  4. Christopher Vials, Associate Professor and Director of American Studies at the University of Connecticut, Storrs is one of the founders of the Campus Antifascist Network at UConn.
