In hour two of Here & Now's Nov. 1, 2016 full broadcast, we revisit our 2014 conversation with historian and author Edward Baptist about his book and the role slavery played in making America an economic power. We also hear about a social media phenomenon related to the protests in North Dakota against the Dakota Access Pipeline, and talk with the founder of a comedy wildlife photography competition about some of its best pictures — and its larger mission. You can read and hear more at hereandnow.org, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook and Tumblr.

This program aired on November 1, 2016.
