Today, Professor Cornell William Brooks begins an hour-long discussion of the living legacy of racial inequality in today's America. Could a commission to consider reparations and solutions to voter suppression create a chance for our country to come to grips with the truth of its past and present? Can we ever right the long term consequences of the wealth stolen from people of color both before and since the end of outright slavery?

Plus Thom reads from "Medical Apartheid: The Dark History of Medical Experimentation on Black Americans from Colonial Times to the Present" by Harriet A. Washington.
