South Asian Seattle City Council Member Attacked By Trump Supporters

seattle-city-councilSeattle City Council member Kshama Sawant is one of many people of color around the US being viciously attacked by Trump supporters. On today’s show we’ll speak with the socialist city council member about what she’s experiencing and why it is important to mobilize in the face of mass abuse and coming repression. And, what will education policy look like under Trump? Our education correspondent Kevin Kumashiro will discuss Trump’s courting of charter school advocates and whether he will keep his promise to overturn Common Core. Plus film critic Stephanie Abraham will review Loving, a new film that came out just before the election and whose love story that defied racist laws seems more relevant than ever.

Hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar.
