In the first half of the program, scholar Aaron Good summarizes a recent article he co-authored with Peter Dale Scott about the September 9, 2001 murder of Afghan militia leader Ahmed Shah Massoud, its connection to the subsequent September 11th attacks, and the ongoing US occupation of Afghanistan. Then English professor and author Adam Bessie examines the implications of the massive change from in-person to remote instruction at community colleges, in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
