Mariann Edgar Budde, Bishop of Washington, and John Garvey, president of Catholic University, to discuss the dramatic change in the public mood since four years ago and the agenda and outlook for the next four years.
- Lynching and Forgiveness – It is one of the darkest stains on America’s history– the lynching of thousands of African-American men, women and children in the 19th and 20th centuries—and not only in the South. Bob Faw speaks with elderly African-Americans who either witnessed lynching or lived in fear of it, and who eventually found ways to forgive.
