Your Call: What can we learn from Moral Monday?


On today’s Your Call, we’ll talk to leaders of the NAACP-led protests in North Carolina that are spawning similar efforts nationwide.

Guests:

Tim Tyson, civil rights historian at Duke University

Rev. Dr. William Barber, president of the North Carolina NAACP and one of the key leaders of Moral
