Moral Mondays, and Fighting Trump: Rev. Dr. William J. Barber
This Week: White people in Appalachia start an NAACP chapter to fight for justice? That surprising story – and others from the Moral Monday Movement in North Carolina that’s building broad, from the bottom up. Reverend Dr. William J Barber II , the architect of Moral Mondays, is my special guest for the whole show. Part of the #Fightfor15 movement, speaker at the DNC, and an advocate for the fight to obtain voting rights, Rev Barber talks on the show about changing the way we think of “morality.” For the Reverend, morality demands love and care, not hate or demagoguery.
Plus, a few words from Laura on bullys on TV. It’s not a bias problem. It’s a power problem. Welcome to the Laura Flanders Show – where people who say it can’t be done – take a back seat to people who are doing it!
