We talk with Thomas Lock­ley about his book, African Samu­rai: The True Sto­ry of Yasuke, a Leg­endary Black War­rior in Feu­dal Japan. It’s about the first for­eign­er and the only African to ever become a samurai.

Then, who — or what — won at Tuesday’s Demo­c­ra­t­ic debate? Polit­i­cal ana­lyst John Nichols of the Nation mag­a­zine joins us with his take. His arti­cle for the Nation is Last Night’s Debate Pro­duced a Clear Win­ner: Medicare for All.”
