President Obama’s eight years in office is winding to a close. What will his legacy be? Meanwhile, President-Elect Trump prepares to take the reins. What can we expect during the first 30 days of his presidency? And will his picks for Secretary of State and Attorney General come out on top following their confirmation hearings? The Another View Round Table tackles all this and more on Friday's Another View. Lisa Godley guest hosts. She's joined by Virginian-Pilot columnist Roger Chesley; community activist Bill Thomas; journalist, author and talk show host Wil LaVeist and special guest pundent, Hampton University History and Political Science Professor Eric Claville. It's all about "The Exchange of Power" on the next Another View, Friday, January 13th at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM or stream us live on this blog!
On the next Another View we talk with scholar Rashad Shabazz, author of "Spatializing Blackness: Architectures of Confinement and Black Masculinity in Chicago" - a fascinating look at how carceral power operates within African American communities. Using history, geography, race and gender studies, Shabazz explains the racialization of space, the role of containment in subordinating African Americans, the politics of mobility under conditions of alledged freedom and the ways Black men cope with, and resist, spacial containment. It's a study of racism through a different lens. Join us for this thought provoking discussion on the next Another View, Friday, January 6 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM or stream us on this blog!
