Eugene Puryear, author of “Shackled and Chained,” joins us as guest host to discuss Charlottesville, confederate memorials, Trump’s presser, how we should never lose our sense of outrage, and ongoing acts of resistance, and how to support it. Eugene also discusses how Charlottesville has been another wake up call to a lot of white America about the nature of the struggle of Black America, and how difficult the denial of America’s history makes addressing other problems.
