    Putting Michael Brown to eternal rest; Stranger Fruit

    in History

    There is a documentary called "Stranger Fruit" about the death of Michael Brown.  Darren Wilson, the officer, made no initial report the day of the murder.  There were more than 25 eyewitnesses by people who saw hands on what happened.  There were construction workers nearby.  Dorian Johnson said they never reached in window of police car for a gun.  Wilson opened the door of the police car and hit both Johnson and Brown.  He proceeded to torment them and chase them on foot from behind and shoot Michael Brown 7 times according to many sources.  There is another side to the story that Darren Wilson contrived.  It's up to you to make the proper conclusions.  We continue the discussion on how the police structure in St. Louis was founded on fraternalism and coverups.  We then debate gun violence of Blacks on their own communities and how other ethnic groups like white people prey on their own women.

About History

As Carl Sagan said, "You have to know the past to understand the present." History has shaped our nation's character, and our collective strength is measured in how we came together during our most challenging moments: the Civil War, World War I, Prohibition, World War II, the Dust Bowl, McCarthyism, the Cold War, the Challenger disaster, Operation Desert Storm, 9/11 and countless struggles before and since. But history also contains triumphs, from ending slavery to the moon landing to the fall of the Berlin Wall to Mars rover Curiosity. Join in discussion on these and more with historians, collectors, authors, professors and conspiracy theorists alike. Our hosts also show much support for our troops and military families. In fact, technology has played a big part in bringing soldiers closer to home, as they text, email and Skype from the front, and our “talk to the troops” episodes are always inspiring.
