METROFOCUS: DECEMBER 4, 2019

December 05, 2019 at 5:30 am

We’ll tell you about the drama at the center of New Jersey’s political feud between Governor Phil Murphy and Senate President Steve Sweeney.  Pulitzer Prize-winning presidential historian Jon Meacham makes sense of the country’s current political climate by taking a look at our past. New York City high school students recently staged a walk out “strike for integration” and say they’ll continue to do until they get it. “Teens Take Charge” alumnus and Program Director, Dulce Marquez and the program’s adviser, Taylor McGraw joins us.

Aired on December 4, 2019.
