The tragic drama “Fences,” won August Wilson his second Pulitzer Prize in 1987. It’s the story of a fallen patriach, former negro league baseball great turned garbage man. However, under the direction of Raelle Myrick-Hodges, the Wilson classic has been revised to provide audiences with a memorably powerful image of a matriarch, played by Oakland-based actress Margo Hall. Margo Hall sits down with us to discuss family and the power of forgiveness. Later on we hear from Mumia Abu-Jamal about the dangers of Trump, Black Agenda Report’s Bruce Dixon explores the culture of violence and Youth Radio’s Phoebe Petrovic ask what young people of color think about Trump?
