This week on The Bulletin, Nicole Martin talks with Emmy award-winning journalist and author Janus Adams who attended the March on Washington in 1963. They discuss the events of that day and the reason “progress” is the wrong word to use when we talk about movement toward greater racial justice. Next, Nicole and Russell Moore tackle the declassification of marijuana, and Russell quotes Merle Haggard. (Do we need a Bulletin-themed weekly playlist?) Finally, Russell and Nicole talk with author and Bulletin producer Clarissa Moll about Jimmy Carter, hospice, and how we talk about the end of life.

Visit us on YouTube for Dr. Janus Adams’ full list of life lessons from the 1963 March on Washington!
