"The Black Book: Reflections From The Baltimore Grassroots"

Dayvon Love and Lawrence Grandpre are African-American grassroots community activists who, along with Adam Jackson, lead an organization called Leaders of a Beautiful Struggle. They are fixtures in Annapolis, advocating to the General Assembly on issues like police accountability and drug policy. They have written a provocative book, a collection of essays that call out the liberal white academic community and what they refer to as the "Nonprofit Industrial Complex" for advancing institutional racism. It's called "The Black Book: Reflections from the Baltimore Grassroots". Dayvon Love and Lawrence Grandpre join Tom Hall in the studio.

Host, Midday (M-F 12:00-1:00)
