2/9/2021: we hear from Lanita Duke and Nia Gray- Lanita Duke, long time grass roots journalist and currently the host of Let’s talk about Race - an a intergenerational, roundtable discussion of independent national journalists featuring rigorous conversations and analysis of news coverage and the role race plays in politics, government, economy, education, and health.— on KBOO every 2nd and 4th Fridays at 6pm

Later on, we hear an interview with Nia Gray- who happens to be Lanita Duke’s daughter and a community leader in her own right. Nia talked with me about growing up at KBOO, how she’s found her own voice and about her work on the Faith Report and The Woke Church. We’ll also hear some childhood stories and a satire song made by Nia and Lanita in 1992!
