When deadly violence shattered a happy Friday evening in Paris, the pain and sadness struck deep here in Southern California. We talk to a French actress about friends and family in her old neighborhood — a place much like Echo Park, and to a Muslim-American leader, who feels outrage against the extremists and vulnerability because of his religion.
Also on the program, University of California President Janet Napolitano on her plan to increase the number of Californians admitted to UC… and the student movement against racial discrimination on campus.
