Basic Black Live: Racist Dialogue or Reasoned Debate?

(Originally broadcast October 22, 2009)  “There is an African American who is at the very apex of the government in the United States. And with such change, of course there’s going to be discontent… So frankly, I’m surprised there hasn’t been more pushback… more out and out racism in the streets of America!” declares Randall Kennedy. In its season premiere, Basic Black examines the issue of racist opposition to Barack Obama. 

 

Basic Black returns October 21, 2010  with live broadcasts and a new panel of the region’s sharpest observers of the current news, events, and topics impacting black communities locally and nationally. A simultaneous live stream at www.basicblack.org gives viewers the opportunity to submit comments and questions in real time during the broadcast.
