Susan Burton – CNN Hero

November 16, 2010

Hope is in short supply these days, particularly for those in America’s packed prison system. California incarcerates more women than any other state, and when those women get out of jail they often have nothing more than $200 in their pockets and hope to go on. Susan Burton was one of those women once, and now she’s founder and executive director of A New Way of Life Reentry Project, a nonprofit organization that helps formerly incarcerated women get their lives back together.

Susan has been named one of CNN’s ten Heroes this year, and is in the running for the top spot, and she joins us via Skype, along with Kimberle Crenshaw, who explains just why Susan’s nomination gives her hope in a bleak time.

“Post-Racial” Politics and History

September 30, 2010

We hear a lot about “post-racial” politics these days–the election of Barack Obama supposedly has led us into a post-racial age, but have we really seen anything change? Not much, notes Kimberle Crenshaw, co-founder of the African-American Policy Forum, and it’s not really new either.  But a lack of a sense of history is another symptom of today’s politics, and Crenshaw notes that even black elected officials and candidates sometimes fall victim.

Crenshaw joins Laura in studio for a look at black tea party candidates, the troubles facing Adrian Fenty and other black mayors, and the problem with claims of “reverse racism.”
