Rising Up With Sonali

A History Lesson on US-Russia Relations

Discussions of Russian interference in US elections is missing one major component – historical context. On today’s show we’ll turn to International Relations expert Robert David English for a much-needed history lesson on US-Russia relations. And, Attorney General Jeff Sessions orders a sweeping review of Obama-era federal consent decrees with problematic police departments. Our correspondent Chenjerai Kumanyika will explain what it really means. Finally, Erika Pinheiro of the group Al Otro Lado will expose how Trump’s harsh immigration enforcement is ripping the fabric of immigrant communities, leaving behind trauma and loss. We’ll examine what’s happening on both sides of the US-Mexico border.
