Special Report: America, Are We Ready?

Listen to KNKX from 5 to 7 p.m. tonight for “America: Are We Ready? Racism, Violence, and Our Future Together,” a pop-up live call-in show to convene a national conversation in this urgent moment.

Produced by WNYC and Minnesota Public Radio, "America: Are We Ready" will air across the country on more than 250 stations. We'll provide a space for you to discuss the recent news stories that have sparked outrage, grief, and fear: the police killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, the murder of Ahmaud Arbery, the potentially deadly false accusations by a white woman against a black man in Central Park, the stark racial disparity in COVID-19 infections and deaths, as well as the response by elected officials to these issues. 

“America: Are We Ready” is hosted by WNYC’s Kai Wright (The United States of Anxiety), Brian Lehrer (The Brian Lehrer Show), Tanzina Vega (The Takeaway) and MPR’s Angela Davis

The number to call, starting at 5 p.m. PT is: 844-745-8255.
