The National Urban League just released its 2017 State of Black America Report and the clarion call is to "protect our progress".  The report sounds the alarm about the Trump administration's shift of funding away from the Departments of Health, Education, Housing and Labor to military funding; the call from Attorney General Jeff Sessions to review consent decrees where policing patterns revealed ingrained racial bias, systemic civil rights violations and the regular use of excessive force; and the social cancer of hate that continues to permeate our public discourse.  On the next Another View we'll talk about this new report, as well as efforts to defund historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). Journalist, author and talk show host Wil LaVeist; community activist Bill Thomas, NSU professor Carol Pretlow and guest pundit Dr. Eric Claville of Hampton University join us for the next Another View Round Table, Friday, May 12 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM, or stream us live on this blog!
