Lynching in the West: Latino, Native and Asian American Communities

Artist and academic Ken Gonzales-Day discusses his research and art uncovering the often untold story of lynching in California. His work demonstrates how the violent act of lynching was used as a tool of racial hatred against many different groups, and outweighed white-on-white vigilantism by nearly two-to-one.

Communities Question Drones in Hawaii

In December of 2013, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) selected Hawaii as a testbed site for drones. With the possibility of a drone industry growing in the state, local residents are questioning the impact of the presence of unmanned aerial vehicles or aircraft, and their use in the state or its airspace. Activist, organizer and law student at the University of Hawaii, Khara Jabola-Carolus joins us to discuss proposed legislation on drones in Hawaii, SB 2608. She will also look at the current and future impact drones will and continue to have on Native and Filipino communities in Hawaii.
