Multicultural Issues At The Conventions

Kansas City, MO – Continuous convention coverage is everywhere! But here at KC Currents we wondered what's missing? So we checked in with NPR's Michel Martin in Denver. She covered the Democratic National Convention last week and is on her way to the upcoming Republican Convention. Martin is a former ABC News Correspondent, and hosts the daily NPR show "Tell Me More", which approaches the topics of the day from the perspective of a multicultural America. KC Currents' Susan Wilson asked Michel Martin what she found most surprising about the 2008 convention.

A native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Susan admits that her “first love” was radio, being an avid listener since childhood. However, she spent much of her career in mental health, healthcare administration, and sports psychology (Susan holds a PhD in clinical psychology from the University of Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and an MBA from the Bloch School of Business at UMKC.) In the meantime, Wilson satisfied her journalistic cravings by doing public speaking, providing “expert” interviews for local television, and being a guest commentator/contributor to KPRS’s morning drive time show and the teen talk show “Generation Rap.”
