Guest Host: Brenda Bell Brown. On this day, we celebrate the birth of filmmaker Henry Hampton, who had the creative genius and foresight to draft American social activist and civil rights leader Julian Bond to narrate his epic, 14-hour documentary about the civil rights movement in the United States, "Eyes on the Prize: America's Civil Rights Movement, 1954-1985."
Today's program includes two guests – the first hour features a young Parisian woman, Helen sharing some of her current favorites with the Minnesota crowd. In the second hour, Franklin Curbelo speaks of a special benefit for Cuban medical supplies coming up in south Minneapolis, on Sat. August 29 at the DuNord Distillery, in south Mpls.
