In this engaging and entertaining new program, St. Louisians Beverly Brennan & Bobby Norfolk shine a bright light on the problems of race and culture in America, through the lens of their own city.
Through storytelling, theater, poetry, comedy, song, personal stories, and thought-provoking prose, Beverly and Bobby expose issues such as stereotyping, ethnicity, ignorance & fear, illuminating a pathway to racial harmony.
Communication enables healing from tragedies such as Ferguson. Storytelling is all about listening and, quite often, enables those too racially deaf or intolerant to make positive changes. Beverly and Bobby tell both sides of the story, and discover that people are more alike than they are different.
