Kresta in the Afternoon – March 6, 2018 – Hour 2

+  What are Trump's Tariffs, and how will they affect us?

  • Description: Last week, President Trump said he would impose a 25% tariff, or tax, on steel imports and 10% on aluminum, sparking a big sell-off in stocks. The stock market drop reflected a bigger concern: a possible "trade war" if other countries hit by the tariffs impose tariffs in retaliation, sparking a back-and-forth of rising tariffs that hurt the growth of economies. The Market has climbed back since then, but many are still wondering what the future holds. We'll talk with George Schwartz.

+  I Will Not Fear: How my Faith Overcame a World of Heartbreak and Anger (2 segments)

  • Description: In 1957, Melba Beals was one of the nine African American students chosen to integrate Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. But her story of overcoming didn't start--or end--there. While her white schoolmates were planning their senior prom, Melba was facing the business end of a double-barreled shotgun and outrunning white supremacists who were ready to kill her rather than sit beside her in a classroom. Only her faith in God sustained her during her darkest days and helped her become a civil rights warrior, an NBC television news reporter, a magazine writer, a professor, a wife, and a mother. She joins us today.

    • I Will Not Fear: My Story of a Lifetime of Building Faith under Fire

      In 1957, Melba Beals was one of the nine African American students chosen to integrate Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. But her story of overcoming didn't start--or end--there. While her white schoolmates were planning their senior prom, Melba was facing the business end of a double-barreled shotgun, being threatened with lynching by rope-carrying tormentors, and learning how to outrun white supremacists who were ready to kill her rather than sit beside her in a classroom. Only her faith in God sustained her during her darkest days and helped her become a civil rights warrior, an NBC television news reporter, a magazine writer, a professor, a wife, and a mother. In I Will Not Fear, Beals takes readers on an unforgettable journey through terror, oppression, and persecution, highlighting the kind of faith needed to survive in a world full of heartbreak and anger. She shows how the deep faith we develop during our most difficult moments is the kind of faith that can change our families, our communities, and even the world. Encouraging and inspiring, Beals's story offers readers hope that faith is the solution to the pervasive hopelessness of our current culture. (learn more)
