InfluenceWatch Podcast #247: A Crisis In Our Classrooms With Armstrong Williams, Part 2


This month, three African American writers and activists with widely different political views published a book together entitled Crisis in the Classroom (Skyhorse Publishing). Despite their many differences, the authors teamed up to insist that the civil rights issue of today is the failure to educate young Americans.

The three authors are Benjamin Crump, Esq., a prominent civil rights attorney whose clients have included George Floyd and Trayvon Martin, and who is sometimes called “Black America’s Attorney General”; Dr. Benjamin Carson, who rose from poverty to head pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Medical Center and later ran for president; and Armstrong Williams, an entrepreneur, philanthropist, and author of three earlier books who hosts The Armstrong Williams Show, which airs on Sinclair Broadcast Group TV stations across America.

Williams joins Capital Research Center’s Scott Walter to discuss the book and the crisis. This is part two in a two-part series.
