The Legacy of Eugenics

NYU recently featured The Haunted Files,an extensive exhibit of artifacts and materials from the era of eugenics in the early twentieth century, including various photographs and documents tracing the history of this disturbing and highly politicized science of racism and biological social engineering. We speak with curators Noah Fuller and Mark Tseng Putterman for an inside look into this chilling world of scientific racism and how it was used to shape immigration and social policy.

Voices of the Fight for 15

The "Fight for 15" movement an estimated 60,000 protesters on April 15, with demonstrations in more than 230 cities and several countries. The movement has hit workplaces that span from the drive-thru to the university campus, penetrating sectors where labor unions have historically had little presence, and rejuvenating long established locals. The demand for a $15 an hour (a full-time annual income of about $31,000) and union representation began with a small mobilization of fast food workers in late 2012, and has spread around the world. We speak with a few workers who attended New York's protests.
