Hey Family,

Amongst the chaos, at least we are kicking off February 2017 the right way. Imelme Umana just became the first black female editor of the Harvard Law review and I just can’t contain myself.

It wouldn’t be Black History month to me if I didn’t start off by showcasing powerful black women.  Why?  Because who just tried to save the world?  Exactly.

I have three words. Bet on Black.

On today’s program i’ll be joined by Tara Murray, former Deputy Legal Director of the London-based human rights non profit Reprieve, where she represented over 30 Guantanamo prisoners in federal district court proceedings.  She also led the organizations first investigation into civilian casualties in drone strikes in Pakistan — an investigation that has expanded to include Yemen and the horn of Africa.

I’ll get her analysis on the recent immigration actions by the administration and whether or not it will truly make the nation safer.

So blackout and tune in as always Wednesdays from 4-5p ET on WERA-FM, 96.7 in Arlington, VA or check us out online at  Facebook.com/EnlightenMeonWERA or on Twitter @EnlightenMEWERA @andreacambron

I only have four shows this month to do this.  I’m making them count.
