Kansas City, MO – Memories of Dr. Walter Peterson, who helped found one of the first all-black, multi-service health clinics in the country. A staged reading of Langston Hughes poems and essays turns the Kansas City Public Library into a Harlem bar-room. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid talks about unpcoming legislation concerning Latinos. Plus, revisit last year's local Bill Cosby event and an interview with author Michael Eric Dyson, who responds to Cosby's controversial comments about parenting and responsibility.
