What do you want to know about President Obama’s war resolution and ISIS?

On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation with former Olympic sprinter John Carlos and sportswriter Dave Zirin about their book, The John Carlos Story: The Sports Moment That Changed the World. Carlos is famous for his politically-charged Black Power salute with Tommie Smith at the 1968 Olympics. How much power does a professional athlete have to speak out to the world beyond sports? And why do we listen?

How is the Occupy movement encouraging creative activism around economic inequality?  Activists are staging occupations at foreclosed homes across the country to raise awareness about the crisis and help families keep their homes.  There is also talk of creating state or municipal banks as one solution to the corruption of the banking system.  What other ways are you seeing the occupy movement galvanize people to support innovative strategies for turning our economy around?  Join the conversation with host Rose Aguilar by calling (415) 841-4134, or email feedback@yourcallradio.org.
