Many of today’s university campuses are the scene of political turmoil, turmoil that is simply a reflection of the rest of society. It is the same anger, name-calling, refusal to listen, but one professor and author says it doesn’t have to be that way. He says we need to reject the ignorance enjoined by racism and sexism, and take the time to learn something new. This program is the second in a three-part series.
Guest: Jonathon Zimmerman, a professor of education and history at the University of Pennsylvania.
