Our show on May 9th, 12:00-1:00 PM will feature the topic of “A Generation of Courage and Vision: Millennials Demanding Justice!” Every study, every talk, every focus group likes to discuss how different Millennials are from Baby Boomers. Yet, the most distinctive aspects of African American Millennials have been their new political consciousness, innovative communications and organizing techniques, and mobilization formations. They are transforming our political debate and activism.

Our special guest is one of the nation’s most powerful Millennial voices and leaders, Samantha Master who as is renowned as a Black, queer, feminist, activist, advocate and educator. We anticipate other Millennial guests to join our show.

Unlike generations before them, African American Millennial activists insist on an integrative, intersectional approach to all of their work.

During this broad-ranging show, we will discuss how Millennials are reshaping the intersectional fights for racial, policing, LGBTQIA, criminal, economic, political and environmental justice in our times. Studies show Millennials as a whole are distrustful of the Trump Administration. How will this impact their public policy engagement at the national level? What does it mean that African American Millennials are running for political office including mayor and city council in many cities? How has older community leaders responded to these candidates? Recent research documents that Black Millennials are different than other Millennials. How and Why? What is the future of the Movement for Black Lives? Will Millennials be a force in the 2018 and 2020 elections?

These and many more questions will be explored during our show.
