We explore the state of hate in the tri-state. Evan Bernstein, regional director at The Anti-Defamation League, joins us with some troubling statistics. As The Great American Read goes in search of heroes, we head to Harlem to learn more about literary giant and social activist, James Baldwin. Actress Edie Falco has played a mafia wife, an addicted nurse and now she’s taking the stage right here in Manhattan as “The True” political force. Edie is here with her insights into all of these roles. New York City has its Little Italy and its China Town, but are you ready for a spice of Little Haiti? Tonight, we take you inside this up-and-coming community.

Aired on September 25, 2018.
