Life Elsewhere On Racism Selected By PRX

Life Elsewhere‘s program titled “Defining Racism” was prompted by the aftermath of the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial and Paula Deen‘s inflammatory language used in deposition. Our guests included Don Daughtry, a missionary who became the only white pastor at an all-black church in Atlanta, circa mid 60’s to mid 70’s. We also spoke with Terry Morgan, an African-American musician, impresario and promoter who has worked by and large with white artists for over thirty years. Plus regular contributor to Life Elsewhere, the legendary rapper, Sir Mix-A-Lot, well known for his thoughtful yet often controversial views, joined the conversation. Included in the show was a montage of voices, including President Obama, theatre professor Fanni Green and Norman B‘s son, James. The montage caught the attention of the curators at PRX, where it is now availablePRX Remix is a hand-picked collection of the best stories from PRX‘s community of producers and beyond.
