Today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

The history of Jim Crow and segregation in America centers on stories of many key men in the south. In her new book Mothers of Massive Resistance: White Women and the Politics of White Supremacy, Professor Elizabeth Gillespie McRae investigates the stories of female segregationists who served as the “crucial workforce” of the white supremacy movement, shaping ideas about sex, marriage, motherhood, culture, and education. She joins me on the show today to talk about her new book and what these hidden histories tell us about the US then and now.

Since we last spoke with John Nichols of The Nation a lot has happened—the State of the Union address, the release of the partisan Nunes Memo, and the looming February 8th deadline before another government shutdown.  John returns to the show today to talk all about these issues and whole lot more, John is The Nation’s national-affairs correspondent, a contributing writer for The Progressive and In These Times and the associate editor of The Capital Times, the daily newspaper in Madison, Wisconsin.
