    Producer/Host: Meredith DeFrancesco
    Program Topic: The lack of civil rights history in US education; October 2011 demonstration in DC

    Key Discussion Points:
    We discuss the recent findings of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s study, which shows the dismal inadequacy of civil rights history taught in schools in the United States.
    We hear from two organizers of the October 2011 demonstration “ to demand that America’s resources be invested in human needs and environmental protection instead of war and exploitation.”
    As Occupy Wall Street gains momentum, and the beginning of media attention, we reflect on the movement and sentiment.

    Guests:
    Maureen Costello, Southern Poverty Law Center
    Lisa Simeone, October 2011 organizer
    Maria Allwine, October 2011
