September 11

Join us as we remember and honor the victims, survivors and first responders that were impacted on that dreadful day.

Open to Hope is a program hosted by mother and daughter duo Dr.’s Gloria and Heidi Horsley.  These amazing women are therapists who specialize in grief counseling and help people find hope in their loss. In 2021 Dr. Heidi Horsely invited Jim Giaccone and Cathie Ong-Herrera to honor their siblings who were killed in the attacks. Cathie’s sister Betty was an American Airlines flight attendant who made a call to AA staff calmly describing what was happening on flight 11.  Jim’s brother Joe was a Vice President at Cantor Fitzgerald located on the 103rd floor of the World Trade Center.   Join us as they discuss how they still honor their siblings today, Cathie through the Betty Ann Ong Foundation and Jim by serving on the board of Tuesday’s Children.  

Songs of Freedom has been airing on MNN for over 20 years. In October 2001 less than 3 weeks after the attacks, producer and host Joel Landy put together a tribute concert to celebrate those who sacrificed their lives on September 11. Join us for this look back at the raw emotions of New Yorkers during that time.   

Truth for a Change is a long-running program on MNN that introduces viewers to a political perspective not usually expressed in mainstream media. On this episode we join a panel discussion moderated by Jasbir Puar, a professor and Graduate Director of Women's and Gender Studies at Rutgers University. Also on the panel are Noura Erakat, human rights attorney and Associate Professor at Rutgers University Department of African Studies and  Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, author and professor of African American Studies at Princeton University. They discuss the growing islamophobia around the world after the attacks of September 11, 2001. 

Watch this Sunday, September 11 at 1PM and Wednesday, September 14  at 7PM on MNN 5 (Spectrum 1993).
