This Week: White people in Appalachia start an NAACP chapter to fight for justice? This week on the Laura Flanders Show, that surprising story – and others from the Moral Monday Movement in North Carolina that’s building broad, from the bottom up. Reverend Dr. William J Barber II, the architect of Moral Mondays, is my special guest for the whole show. Plus, a few words from me on bullys on TV. It’s not a bias problem. It’s a power problem. Welcome to the Laura Flanders Show – where people who say it can’t be done – take a back seat to people who are doing it!
