In the first half-hour, author and professor Carol Anderson rejoins the Project Censored Show to discuss structural racism in the US, especially in the context of the presidential campaign. In the second half of the program, human-rights activists Hector Aristizabal and Isabel Garcia speak about conditions on the US-Mexico border, and how multiple US administrations have enforced border policies that bring death to many immigrants. They also discuss the Border Convergence taking place October 7 – 10.
Carol Anderson is Professor of African-American Studies at Emory University in Atlanta, and the author of “White Rage: The Unspoken Truth Of Our Racial Divide.” Hector Aristizabal is an artist and human-rights activist, and the founder of Imagination. Isabel Garcia is co-chair of the Coalicion de Derechos Humanos, an organization that campaigns for immigrant rights, and opposes militarization of the border.
This program was recorded prior to the Border Convergence.
