On Bill Moyers Journal - June 20

From the NEWSLETTER for Friday, June 20, 2008

We're taking June off. Next Moyers Talkers meeting is Thursday, July 17, at 7:00 PM at the upstairs Learning Center of the Glendale Central Library, 222 East Harvard Street, Glendale.


BILL MOYERS JOURNAL examines racial inequality in America through the prisms of the legacy of slavery and the current socio-economic landscape. The program previews TRACES OF THE TRADE which premieres on PBS' documentary series P.O.V. on Tuesday (KCET-TV).

Bill Moyers interviews Douglas Blackmon, the Atlanta bureau chief of the WALL STREET JOURNAL, about his latest book SLAVERY BY ANOTHER NAME, which looks at an “age of neoslavery” that thrived from the aftermath of the Civil War through the dawn of World War II.

And Moyers gets perspective from historical and cultural sociologist Orlando Patterson and Glenn C. Loury, an economist and expert on race and social division.

Facing history. Weigh in on our discussion of reconciling the legacy of slavery.

JOURNAL writer Michael Winship on Countrywide Financial Corporation's preferential treatment of some Beltway bigwigs.
