Long-time Honduras-solidarity activist Matt Ginsberg-Jaeckle is the first guest on this weeks show; he provides updates on the suppression of popular dissent in Honduras in the aftermath of last year’s corrupted election, and the pervasive power of a tiny US-backed ruling elite. For the second segment of the program, Portland-area high-school teacher Ursula Wolfe-Rocca is the guest; drawing on examples ranging from MLK and COINTELPRO to todays Black Lives Matter movement, she explains how the study of history enables students to connect the past to the present, and to become more critical thinkers. She also suggests resources for teachers who want to take their classes beyond standard textbooks.
