2014 is an election year, and as in any campaign period, Americans are talking a lot about the issues. Tonight on WXDU news, we look at two important election issues: gun control and poverty.
First at 6:00, we join BackStory with the American History Guys in a rebroadcast of "Straight Shot: Guns in America," an episode that first aired after the December 2012 shootings in Newtown, Connecticut. The guys explore the history of gun ownership in America and the meaning of the Second Amendment. For more information on this and other episodes, visit backstoryradio.org.
And at 7:00, Moyers & Company discusses poverty and food insecurity on "The Faces of America's Hungry." Bill Moyers talks to one of the directors and producers of A Place at the Table, a 2012 documentary about hunger, and the director for the Center for Hunger-Free Communities. Later in the program, he learns more about poverty and hunger in America from journalist Greg Kaufmann, who researches and writes on the topic.
