Segment 1: "The Laura Flanders Show"
(25 minutes)

We’re living in a time of economic babble, where politicians and economists throw out words like “reform,” “privatize,” and “austerity” to prop up
corrupt capitalist opportunists. So says our guest this week, economist Michael Hudson, author of J is for Junk Economics.
Plus, a report from Diverse Filmmaker’s Alliance on the Yemeni bodega workers who went on strike in New York to protest the Muslim Ban.
And Laura’s F-Word on why Donald Trump’s new budget isn’t about cuts -- it’s about conversions. The budget wants to convert public dollars into private
funding for military research and spending, for the only government apparatus that never gets audited.

 

Segment 2: "A Young Poet Tells the Story of Darfur"
(11 minutes)

Emtithal "Emi" Mahmoud writes poetry of resilience, confronting her experience of escaping the genocide in Darfur in verse. She shares two stirring original poems about refugees, family, joy and sorrow, asking, "Will you witness me?"
 

Segment 3: "Dakota 38"
(78 minutes)

In the spring of 2005, Jim Miller, a Native spiritual leader and Vietnam veteran, found himself in a dream riding on horseback across the great plains of South Dakota. Just before he awoke, he arrived at a riverbank in Minnesota and saw 38 of his Dakota ancestors hanged. At the time, Jim knew nothing of the largest mass execution in United States history, ordered by Abraham Lincoln on December 26, 1862. "When you have dreams, you know when they come from the creator... As any recovered alcoholic, I made believe that I didn't get it. I tried to put it out of my mind, yet it's one of those dreams that bothers you night and day."  Four years later, embracing the message of the dream, Jim and a group of riders retrace the 330-mile route of his dream on horseback from Lower Brule, South Dakota to Mankato,
Minnesota to arrive at the hanging site on the anniversary of the execution.
This is the story of their journey- the blizzards they endure,the Native and Non-Native communities that house and feed them along the way, and the dark
history they are beginning to wipe away.
