Many people say this is the day terror came to the United States. But a number of communities in this country have known terror for a long time.

Guests:

  • Martin Luther King III, president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the organization his father founded in 1957. His father was assassinated April 4, 1968.
  • Odetta, blues, folk, gospel singer. Considered the "Queen of American Folk Music," Odetta has introduced audiences worldwide to American roots music and especially African-American folk, blues and gospel. As a major voice in the American Civil Rights Movement, she marched with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in Selma, sang for the masses in Washington in 1963, and performed for President John F. Kennedy at a civil rights presentation on national television.
  • Greg Palast, investigative reporter with the BBC. Palast just won a Project Censored award for his piece in the London Guardian, 'FBI and US Spy Agents Say Bush Spiked Bin Laden Probes Before 11 September.'
