New from C-SPAN Podcasts

July 23 will mark the 55th anniversary of the Detroit Race Riot. Forty-three people died and more than a thousand were injured during that chaotic week in 1967. Our guest, professor Clarence Lusane, was there. His mother and sister were shot. We talk to him about that experience, his academic career and his activism. He is a professor of political science at Howard University in Washington, D.C. Hear our conversation with Professor Lusane this week on Booknotes+.
The Weekly
The Weekly looks back at the 2020 State of the Union address, in which former President Trump discussed the killing of terrorist leader Qasem Soleimani — and got big applause. Will President Biden mention his killing of an ISIS leader in his first State of the Union address next week? The Weekly considers that question and remembers Trump's many mentions of Soleimani on the 2020 campaign trail in this new episode.

Also: This week on the Lectures in History podcast, Emory University professor Carol Anderson discusses efforts in the early 1960s to register Black voters in Mississippi, and some of the leaders of the movement.
