Reflecting on Last Week's G20 Summit with Historian Dr. Gerald Horne

Written by stephanie case on . Posted in Front News

 On July 7, the Group of Twenty, comprised of some of the world's biggest global powers, convened in Hamburg, Germany. The summit itself was largely overshadowed by the anti-capitalist protests surrounding it, as well as the much-hyped first meeting of Donald Trump and Russia's Vladimir Putin. What else happened at the event? What realignments among governments took place? Did the U.S. emerge stronger or weaker in the international sphere?

To discuss the impact of the G20, our guest is Dr. Gerald Horne, Professor of History and African American Studies at the University of Houston and the author of more than three dozen books.
