In this episode we look at the anniversary of the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington and ask the burning question "WTF happened to nonviolence in America?" 

Then we look at the little known connection between Hip-Hop and the nonviolent movement MLK Jr. began. Few understand that rap music carried the torch of nonviolence more than any other form of music on earth. 

 

After that we take a quick look at U.S., and Syria. This show was recorded a few days before Russia cut the deal with Syria to turn over weapons.  Then we look at the global cancer of child brides and begin to look into how we can stop it.
