February 26, 2016: Super Tuesday. More Cory Booker. Black Suburbia. Wilhemina’s War.

February 27, 2016 at 6:00 am

We sit down with Washington Post Columnist Chris Cillizza to talk about Super Tuesday and the Democratic Primary in South Carolina. We finish up our conversation with U.S. Sen. Cory Booker with discussion on the Black Lives Matter movement, race relations, the presidential election and Obama’s potential Supreme Court nominee. We hear from New York Public Library’s Isissa about the new exhibit “Black Suburbia: From Levittown to Ferguson,” which explores segregation and its history in communities across America. And filmmaker June Cross stops by to discuss her Independent Lens film “Wilhemina’s War,” which showcases a community in South Carolina dealing with the harsh reality of AIDS.
