The Bob Edwards Show, Pete Daniel and Christopher Buckley, May 16, 2013 | [Bob Edwards]

The Bob Edwards Show, Pete Daniel and Christopher Buckley, May 16, 2013

The civil rights struggle made great strides in many sectors of American society, but the movement did little to help Southern black farmers. The number of African-American farmers dropped by 93% between 1940 and 1974, predominately because they were forced from their land by discrimination, lack of information, and intimidation by the Department of Agriculture. Pete Daniel writes about this little-known chapter of American history in Dispossession: Discrimination Against African American Farmers in the Age of Civil Rights.

Then, Christopher Buckley’s fictional novel They Eat Puppies, Don’t They? is about U.S.-China relations. In the book, a Washington lobbyist teams up with a neocon to turn the American public against the Chinese. Buckley will discuss the novel, and how you determine fact from fiction in our capitol city.
