    Producers/Hosts: Meredith DeFrancesco and Amy Browne

    Today we take a look at local reactions to the news that the U.S. has elected it’s first African-American President—ranging from hope to racism, and back to hope— as the community pulls together in opposition to racism. Interviews with Assata Sherrill and Dan Lourie; Then we talk with Paul Mayewski of the University of Maine’s Climate Change Institute, about their on-going lecture series.

    What did the election of Obama mean to Assata Sherrill, a local African-American woman who has led efforts to provide education and dialogue about race?  How has the community responded to acts of racism?  How can people learn more about climate change?
