  2. Paul Kawika Martin, Policy and Political Director with the national group Peace Action, assesses the recent implementation of the international nuclear arms deal with Iran — and the plan to modernize the U.S. nuclear weapons arsenal, the inherent dangers, cost and concern about the program triggering a new nuclear arms race.
  3. Michelle Higgins, Director, Faith With Justice & Organization for Black Struggle talks about the nationwide “Reclaim MLK” protest actions that were organized for the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend, January 15-18th, and the movement’s three central demands: 1) Divest from racist systems & invest in black communities; 2) Community control; 3) Alternative institutions.
  4. Tom Swan, executive director of the Connecticut Citizen Action Group, discusses General Electric’s announcement that they’ll be moving their Headquarters from Fairfield, CT to Boston, Mass.

10 PM: Writer’s Voice: Francesca Rheannon

We talk with acclaimed biographer James McGrath Morris about his just-released biography, Ethel Payne, First Lady Of The Black Press. Few Americans today have ever heard of Ethel Payne, much less understood the giant role she played in reporting the story — and advancing the agenda — of the civil rights movement in America. Through Payne’s riveting personal story, Morris takes the reader on an inspiring journey through the civil rights movement — and a greater understanding of issues that continue to resonate strongly today.
