Wednesday, July 17, 2013
Juror B37 from the Zimmerman trial went public with her experience, and Emily Bazelon from Slate joins us to discuss what the juror revealed about the trial. Then: Public Advocate and one of the democratic nominees for mayor of New York Bill de Blasio. Plus: Nelson Mandela’s life, legacy and South Africa today on the day before his 95th birthday with Ebrahim Rasool, South African ambassador to the U.S. and Nicole Lee, president of TransAfrica; and an hour of open phones, including interfaith calls on fasting in honor of Ramadan as part of this week’s Five Pillars of Islam series.
