Shadow Politics with Senator Michael Brown and guest Tom Coleman

REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMAN TOM COLEMAN - DC representation used to Be a bipartisan cause!  Maria and I will hold a conversation with Congressman Coleman in an attempt to find out why so many Republicans supported representation for the District of Columbia during his tenure but now stand firmly against us. As the second Republican in support of the rights of DC residents to be on our show, we continue our examination of what needs to happen to get our opposition to support DC statehood.

Our guest is Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.). Please join us as we discuss the new energy around DC statehood and the prospects for holding the first hearing in the House of Representatives in more than 25 years. We will talk about the historic House vote to make DC statehood a priority. Call in with your questions and be part of the conversation! 

Our guest Jeremiah Lowery, a native Washingtonian and Climate Justice Organizer for the District of Columbia will talk about environmental change such as the current hurricanes, global warming and earthquakes happening around the world, Statehood for DC, racial politics, and Trump - along with current events in DC and being a community organizer. Join us!

Our guest this Sunday on "Shadow Politics" will be historian C.R. Gibbs. We will discuss the holiday Emancipation Day in the District of Columbia. Emancipation Day is the only holiday in Washington D.C. and this year all of America gets an additional 3 days to file their Income Taxes due to the government being closed for the Holiday. Emancipation Day commemorates President Abe Lincoln (a Republican) buying all 3,100 slaves in the District and setting them free nine months before the Emancipation Proclamation.

Our guest is Nelson Rimensnyder. Nelson is a noted political historian who served on the District of Columbia committee of Congress for many years. He will discuss the origins of the District of Columbia through the debates of the Constitutional Convention, early related Congressional action, and some reasons why the enfranchisement of DC residents was not sufficiently addressed.
