Atlanta's Nic Stone Wants You To Read Uncomfortable Books

“Dear Martin,” a new novel by Atlanta author Nic Stone explores police violence against people of color, through the eyes of a teenage boy.

The book launches with an event that night at The National Center for Human and Civil Rights in Atlanta.

Trump Begins To Dismantle Obamacare Piece By Piece

Today on “Political Rewind,” Delta Airlines CEO Edward Bastain is bristling at a few Trump administration policies that he says will hurt the company.

Then: negotiations on a new NAFTA agreement break down, Georgia farmers could pay a steep price for failure to strike a deal. How much will tariffs hurt agriculture exports, especially in the North Georgia poultry industry? Plus: President Trump kills government subsidies for Americans who struggle to buy health insurance, and he says he’ll now unravel Obamacare piece by piece.
