Racial Reconciliation

Dred Scott and Plessy v. Ferguson - two 19th century landmark Supreme Court cases that denied basic civil rights to African Americans.

It's a candid conversation about how some laws led to racism and how we can work together now for change. Our guests include Lynne M. Jackson, great great-granddaughter of Dred Scott, the slave who sued for his freedom in 1857; and Henry L. Chambers, Jr., professor at University of Richmond School of Law, and member of Governor's Commission to Examine Racial Inequity in Virginia Law.

With the assassination of Iran's top general Qasem Soleimani, has President Trump and his administration just started a war with Iran?

The Best of Another View 2019

AV Round Table: I Love Your Hair!...or Not!

Some like it super short, others sport regally cascading curls, quirky coils, dredlocks, afros or braids. Black women have freed themselves from chemical bondage and let their natural hair fly free. But, it's been at a cost – emotionally, socially and economically. For some it has even affected their health. It's become a civil rights issue for African American women and their right to wear their hair the way they choose. Our round table pundits are here and you best believe they have something to say about natural hair!

2020 Census

It's in the Constitution - every 10 years we count the number of people living in the United States and its territories. And in 2020 the U.S. Census Bureau will count us again. But there are some groups that may be under-counted, such as African-Americans, Hispanics and poor people. Why do we need an accurate Census count? Why are some groups leery of the process? What can we do to ensure everyone is counted? Find out the "ins and outs" of the 2020 Census with our guest, Gaylene Kanoyton, President, NAACP Hampton Chapter and member of the Virginia Complete Count Commission, whose mission is to "...educate, empower, and engage all communities for the purpose of ensuring that everyone who lives in the Commonwealth of Virginia is counted in the 2020 Census."

This is the story of two Black peanut farmers - Clif Slade and Elisha Barnes - generational farmers who have found a way to adapt despite changes to peanut farming and farming in general.

Another View History Lesson - The Civil War

It's the war that literally divided our country and 150 years later its impact lingers and not always in a positive way. There is much debate about how we memorialize the Civil War and the Confederacy - should we change the name of public buildings named after Civil War heroes? What about confederate statues, should they stay or go? And will we ever solve the race issue in this country? These are weighty topics that we discuss with Christy Coleman, CEO of the American Civil War Museum. It's an Another View history lesson you won't soon forget!
