    great interview going to go to TRN's website to finish it. yes Ida was one of the first muckrakers on top of that, and what disservice that I thought I knew everything about the civil rights movement but really it was her and Emmet Till's murder that helped unleash it. great stuff Real News keep up the brilliant work, if your hiring please let me know LOL and if I ever find myself in Baltimore I'll be sure to check out this new restaurant of yours 🙂 lastly Taya looking very beautiful 🙂 and what happened to Kim Brown is she no longer working at TRN?

    As brief as this interview was, this was good and important information. Thank you.
    One more thing I would appreciate is to have the name(s) of those interviewed be included in the show notes.
