Still Marching: The Poor People’s Campaign 2018

The Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. launched the Poor People’s Campaign in 1967-68. It was a nationwide effort to persuade a reluctant Congress and White House to take comprehensive action against poverty. Fifty years later, poverty persists, but so does the determination of a new generation of activists. To learn more, TruthToTell interviews Rob Eller-Isaacs, co-pastor of Unity Unitarian Church and co-chair of the Poor People’s Campaign Minnesota.

Ways of Remembering: Reflections on Memorial Day

Ways of Remembering: Reflections on Memorial Day

What does Memorial Day mean to you? A visit to a cemetery to remember a loved one? An occasion to honor our military veterans? The happy culmination of a three-day weekend? What do the ways we remember the dead tell us about the living? TruthToTell host Tom O’Connell talks with James Silas Rogers, author of “Northern Orchards: Places Near the Dead”; revisits an interview with Susan Hunter-Weir, author of “Tales from Pioneers & Soldiers Cemetery,” a monthly column in the Alley newspaper; and pays tribute to several local heroes who have enriched our common life.
