Today on Your Call: The Dream vs. The Gap

The On Today's Your Call,  we’ll have a conversation about the economic realities of white, black and brown Americans. According to the Pew Research Survey, two out of three Americans now perceive strong social conflicts over the income gap — up sharply from two years ago. Do the changing realities of our economy mean that class divides are becoming more critical than race or nationality? Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org. It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Guests:

Clarence Jones, scholar in residence and visiting professor at Stanford University's Martin Luther King Jr. Research and Education Institute.  He worked on a draft of Martin Luther King’s speech, 'I Have a Dream.'

Ethel Long-Scott, executive director of The Women's Economic Agenda Project,  a non-profit organization committed to attaining economic human rights for all people.
