Tune in to MNN this Sunday, September 21st as "Democracy Now!" offers live coverage of the People’s Climate March in New York City. A prominent event that's part of the United Nations' International Day of Peace, the march takes place on Manhattan's Upper West Side and in Midtown. Local artists, activists and Hurricane Sandy victims will participate in Sunday's march, which could draw as many as 100,000 people (though officials aren't offering estimates), according to The New York Times.
Saturday, September 20th, MNN's "Inside New York" remembers the legendary actor and activist Ruby Dee with a rebroadcast of one of the last interviews she gave before her death in June 2014.
The cablecast coincides with a public memorial service for the "godmother of black theatre," as Dee is known, that's being held Saturday at the Riverside Church in Manhattan. Featured guests at the memorial service include singers Alicia Keys and Audra McDonald, former Mayor David Dinkins. Iconic actor Harry Belafonte will deliver the eulogy.
