Fifty years ago this summer, a group of Native American activists scaled the top of the Mount Rushmore and occupied the area for months to demand the land be returned to the Sioux. We look back on the significance of this event with the son of one of the original protesters, Executive Director of United Native Americans Quanah Parker Brightman. Also, while much TV production has halted across the world, there's still quality programming to catch up on. NPR TV critic Eric Deggans shares some of his favorites to binge over the holiday weekend. That and more, in hour two of Here & Now's July 3, 2020, full broadcast.
