It’s Inauguration Time

It’s been a two year journey, from the declaration of candidates through the primaries and the grueling general election campaign.  Now that Barack Obama is set to assume the job he won on November 7th as President of the United States, the real work begins.  But before then, let’s party!  Patt brings the Inauguration Day festivities to you with a security briefing from the Secret Service, weather updates from people on the ground in frozen Washington D.C. and reports from the first parties of Inaugural. Avoid the dreaded William Henry Harrison treatment—catch all the Inaugural activities on the radio at KPCC.

The Black Girl Next Door

The only Black girl in her class, in her grade, and besides her sister, in her school, Jennifer Baszile grew up in the post-Civil Rights era of the 1970s and 80s in the affluent community of Palos Verdes, floating somewhere between the segregation of the past and the integration of the future. She chronicles life as part of the first generation of Americans for which racial integration became a true possibility in her new book, The Black Girl Next Door.
