About the program
Pacifica’s theme is Normalcy Never Again: The Inauguration and the People’s National Mandate, the title of Dr. King’s commonly known I Have A Dream speech rendered at the March on Washington. WPFW and WBAI chose this focus to center coverage of the inauguration within the context of Dr. King’s vision for America given the events of January and the recent King holiday.
A partial guest list includes Reverend William Barber, Linda Sarsour, Andy Zee, Dr. Gerald Horne (a frequent A Public Affair guest), Reverend Bill Lamar, Dr. Julian Malveaux and Askia Muhammad.
