Women in the Freedom Movement, Drones, Bears Ears

Hosted by Lara Jones and Nick Burns, tonight's show featured a conversation about the role and accomplishments of Women in the Freedom Movement with Northeastern University law professor Margaret Burnham, founder of the School’s Civil Rights and Restorative Justice project. Sitting in on the conversation was Marian Howe and her mother, Ruth-Arlene Howe, who had the foresight to suggest getting Burnham, Kathleen Cleaver, Angela Davis and Michele Goodwin on the same stage to talk about the black freedom struggle in American from the female perspective. The forum will be held Feb. 8, 2017, 7-8:30 p.m., at the Grand Theatre, Salt Lake Community College South City Campus, 1575 S. State St., SLC. The free tickets have all been given out, but Nick Burns recommends arriving early and joining the wait list if you'd like to attend.
