Frank's audio is a bit wonky at times, but still worth a listen.

Frank and David discuss:

1. Trump's firing of acting Attorney General Sally Yates and dissent by civil servants

2. Black History Month

3. Historians as Activists: What happens when historians venture into politics. Inspiring in part by the American Historical Association's statement on Trump's immigration policy: http://blog.historians.org/2017/01/aha-condemns-executive-order-restricting-entry-united-states/
