Talking About Charleston

After a Sunday of worship and displays of racial solidarity,  the city of Charleston South Carolina prepares for a week of funerals. We talk about the nation’s latest mass shooting today with Maryland congressman Chris Van Hollen  and with Charles Ellison, contributing editor of The Root, who sees the Charleston killings as an act of domestic terror. Also joining us: Firmin DeBrabander, the Baltimore-based author of a new book on guns and freedom; presidential historian Richard Striner of Washington College, Maryland psychiatrist and author Gordon Livingston and political and cultural commentator Kimberly Moffitt of UMBC.
