8.14.2023 #RolandMartinUnfiltered: Republican assault on education; Racist attack on black historian; Remembering Clarence Avant
Republicans continue to attack facts and education, this time with the North Carolina Republican-controlled House passing a bill to ban public school teachers from compelling white students to feel guilty or responsible for past actions committed by people of the same race. We will break down when this law goes into effect and what this means for students in North Carolina.
But the impact of the anti-factual history crusade conservatives have waged against education doesn't stop there. We'll be discussing how the state of Arkansas has recently withdrawn approval for the Advanced Placement African American Studies course in the high school curriculum. We explain why they revoked the system just days before the school year started.
A Florida federal jury convicted a white man for a racially motivated attack against Historian Marvin Dunn and five other Black Men at the historic Rosewood Massacre site. Historian Marvin Dunn'll join us to discuss what happened and the verdict's significance 100 years after the Rosewood Massacre.
Lastly, we'll honor the life and legacy of Clarence Avant, the record executive known as the 'Godfather of Black Music,' with people who knew him best.
