This week, noted journalist and educator, Ta-Nehisi Coates, challenged Democratic presidential candidates on the issue of reparations to African-Americans for the tragic outcomes of slavery with his recent article for The Atlantic and asked Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders if he was in favor of reparations. The article and Bernie Sanders’ response has created a firestorm that Down South and Dirty will take a bit further.

Join us this Sunday, January 24th, for a lively discussion based on the premise, “Okay, what would happen IF we got reparations?” If you’re a regular DSD listener, you know how it goes on the DSD porch; we’re going to ask hard questions and ask ourselves and our listeners to think about this very controversial issue that the African-American community has debated for years. As usual, we will have our Bern Treatment with DSD correspondent Anoa Changa who was on the ground this week at the Bernie rally in Birmingham, AL; Stacey and Scout will chop up somebody or something in our weekly Dirty List and we’ve got guest commentators joining us for the reparations discussion. So, make plans to call in at (657) 383-0995 and become a healthy part of the conversation! We ask callers to please limit remarks to two minutes, so we can keep the tea flowing.

See you this Sunday at 2pm EST on Down South and Dirty Radio!
