Panthers line up at rally in DeFremery Park, Oakland, July 28, 1968.

Coming up on today's show:

  • Alan Feuer, New York Times metro desk reporter, discusses how the inquiry into civil rights violations against the NYPD officer responsible for Eric Garner’s death has caused a rift between the Justice Department and federal investigators and veered into "uncharted legal waters."
  • Steve Shepard, chief polling analyst for POLITICO, talks about early voting statistics and listeners who have already cast their ballots call in.
  • Bénédicte de Montlaur, cultural counselor of the French embassy in the United States, and Ta-Nehisi Coates preview the Festival Albertine he's hosting that will explore identity and the arts in the U.S. and France.
  • Bobby Seale, community organizer and activist, former chairman of the Black Panther Party, and Stephen Shames, photographer, talk about their new book Power to the People: The World of the Black Panthers (Abrams, 2016), and look back on the legacy of the Black Panther Party, founded in October 1966.
