Grace Lee Boggs credited labor leader A. Phillip Randolph as her inspiration during our interview in Detroit. We dug up some audio of his 1963 speech at the March on Washington. Oh, what a voice!
In this show, we speak with an African American Christian and an American Muslim and explore the perspectives of two religious communities which defy the broad stereotypes of this election year. We'll seek to gain a deeper understanding of the way in which they are thinking through the mix of religious ideas that have come to the forefront of this campaign. These religious people see complex choices between competing religious ideals, and they are making their decisions in ways that challenge the intuition of pollsters and pundits.
