7pm - Represent NYC: Can the Judicial Branch Keep the President in Check?

From immigration bans to bathroom bills, the Trump administration is taking swift steps to reverse protections put in place by Obama. However, some federal judges are saying, “not so fast.”

This Sunday on “Represent NYC,” political analyst and author of “The Democracy Promotion Paradox,” Lincoln Mitchell, talks with Attorney and Rolling Stone writer Bridgette Dunlap and Professor of History and Human Rights Manu Bhagavan about the dangers of Trump’s authoritarian behavior, the judicial branch’s pivotal role in reviewing his executive orders and what the future looks like for the American people.

8pm - The Radical Imagination: Imagining the Great Society is Not the Same as Making America Great Again

While the problems we face today are not new, our leaders’ response to them has caused many Americans to protest louder than ever before.
