The Bob Edwards Show, Janny Scott and Rachel Lloyd, May 5, 2011

This is the unlikely life of Stanley Ann Dunham, who was born in Wichita, Kansas, yet married a man from Kenya and ultimately raised a future President of the United States. New York Times reporter Janny Scott interviewed nearly 200 people to complete A Singular Woman: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mother. Bob chats with Scott about the President’s mother – the progressive, if unorganized, woman who didn’t live to see her son’s political success.

Next, Rachel Lloyd became a prostitute when she was just thirteen-years old. Her single mom was an alcoholic and with no adult paying attention, Lloyd was an easy target for a pimp who brought her into “the life.” Several years later, Lloyd got out, earned her GED, then bachelors and masters degrees, and is now the head of GEMS, an organization she formed in 1998 to help girls like her. Lloyd has written a new book, Girls Like Us: Fighting for a World Where Girls Are Not for Sale, an Activist Finds Her Calling and Heals Herself. [Broadcast Date: May 5, 2011]
