This Week In Joe’s Basement, episode 55: Squashing the Butterfly

AIR DATES: January 11, 18, 1993

Description:

A follow-up to the classic “Sledgehammer Diplomacy.”  This time the camera crew heads to Chicago’s Union Station, to talk with Amtrak travelers.

Although the choice of location deprives us of the bracing immediacy of visits to poor neighborhoods, we do hear from people who live outside of Chicago.

Two people are particularly memorable: a tall, old black Texan blurts out that Wisconsinwoman insists that blacks should simply forget about slavery and move on.
