We begin our show with a discussion about the Black Lives Matter movement and the Civil Rights Movement: differences, tensions, and connections. Our panel of guests will be responding in part to an op-ed in the Washington Post last week, written by Civil Rights activist Barbara Reynolds, “I was a civil rights activist in the 1960s. But it’s hard for me to get behind Black Lives Matter.”

Our panel will include: Kalima Young, Director of the Baltimore Art + Justice Project, a project of the Office of Community Engagement at the Maryland Institute College of Art; the Rev. Dr. Heber Brown, Pastor of Pleasant Hope Baptist Church and Executive Director of Orita’s Cross Freedom School; and John Milton Wesley, author, songwriter, and Senior Fellow in Social Marketing with the National Center for Health Behavioral Change at Morgan State University.
