"Making The Invisible Visible" through Music, Art, and Poetry.
Host Robert McNichols Jr. speaks with Jade Powers, Assistant Curator at The Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, about The Underground Railroad and the exhibit "Selections from Night Coming Tenderly, Black" by photographer Dawoud Bey. We'll also hear an oratorio based on the writings of William Still from composer Paul Moravec and librettist Mark Campbell.
