Rising Up With Sonali

Rising Up With Sonali – June 2, 2023

This week, well turn to historian Betsy Wood for a look at how Republicans are loosening child labor laws and shockingly making it easier for some states to exploit child workers. Then, long-time labor activist and scholar Bill Fletcher Jr. joins me to discuss his new novel, the Man Who Changed Colors. Its a followup novel from his earlier work The Man Who Fell From the Sky and it weaves together social justice themes around race and class. Finally, well air Part 2 of a 2 part interview with acclaimed journalist Davey D exploring 50 years of Hip-Hop history and how it has been a vehicle for social justice and cultural power.
