Basic Black LIVE: Religion, Politics & Tiger Woods

(Originally broadcast December 17, 2009) ‘Tis the season... so our topic this week is religion — specifically the politics of religion. By examining several examples over the past year (from the political activism of white evangelicals to, most recently, the role of black ministers in the Boston mayoral election), our conversation will explore what can happen at the intersection of religion and politics. Additionally we'll take a look at race and Tiger Woods.

Our panel this week is Callie Crossley, media commentator; Latoyia Edwards, New England Cable News, and Peniel Joseph, Professor of History, Tufts University.
