Ep. 62: A “Post-Racial” Green Book; The DACA Court Decision; March for Our Lives Protests Dino Rossi

“The Negro Motorist Green Book” was a guide published between 1936 and 1966 as a way for black people traveling in Jim Crow America to find safe places. Author Jan Miles has updated the book, but instead of safe places, she’s documented state-by-state accounts of racism and police killing of black people as a way to call attention to the persistence of racism in modern America.

We also talk with DACA recipient and activist Monserrat Padilla about her reaction to the latest court ruling against Drumpf’s rescinding of DACA.

Finally, we chat with student and core-team leader for March for Our Lives Seattle, Kyler Parris, about today’s protest in Sammamish intended to call attention to the money Republican candidate Dino Rossi has received from the NRA.
