EJ Dionne of the Brookings Institution and the Washington Post offers his perspective on political repercussions following President Trump’s dismissal of former FBI director, James Comey. Then, the Economic Policy Institute’s Richard Rothstein explains the government policies that established and enforced racial segregation in U.S. cities, and a young Palestinian on why he’s hopeful about peace with Israel.
Richard Rothstein was a guest on Diane’s show many times, helping us understand current issues of racial segregation through the lens of history and government policy. So, for our “From the Archives” this week, we return to one of our favorite shows with Rothstein on the legacy of the U.S. highway system. We’d also encourage you to check out a project that resulted from feedback we got from that show: your stories of how freeways divided your neighborhoods.
