‘ON THE GROUND’ SHOW FOR OCTOBER 7, 2016: Former U.S. Intelligence and Military Officers Urge Obama to De-Escalate Tensions With Russia…Hundreds Rally in Aftermath of Fatal Police Shooting Of Terrence Sterling in D.C…’The Birth of a Nation’ is a Must-See

As Hurricane Matthew devastates Haiti and pounds the southeast, policymakers here in DC are actually mulling the storms of war in Syria. We speak to professor Gerald Horne about the dangerous game being played with war and peace. We also continue our coverage of DC protests about the fatal police shooting of Terrence Sterling, an unarmed Black man who was shot to death while on his motorcycle on Sept.11. We hear voices from a rally attended by hundreds this week right here in the nation’s capital. And finally, the release of the eagerly anticipated film, “The Birth of a Nation” and throughout the show we pay tribute to the 40th anniversary of Stevie Wonder’s opus album “Song’s in the Key of Life.” Plus headlines.
