WVPE continues its month-long series of programs focusing on racial justice with another episode of Peace Talks Radio.

Arjun Singh Sethi, author

Two topics on this new program. First, Judy Goldberg visits with Arjun Singh Sethi who tells us about his book, American Hate - Survivors Speak Out born out of his travels across the country to represent those directly impacted by hate crimes. Through the conversation we learn how adversity can activate all of us to become more involved in our local communities by standing up to hate and injustice.

Also in the show Paul Ingles talks with media literacy scholar and teacher Rob Williams about ways to filter our experience with mass media to minimize the disruption to our inner peace and ability to make peace with others in our world. Among other things, Williams gives an overview of how to differentiate between what's been called "Fake News" and what is fact-based, well-sourced reporting.
