Welcome to Full Circle, your Cultural Affairs radio magazine produced by members and Graduates of the First Voice Apprenticeship Program. On tonight’s show, we”ll hear pieces produced by past apprentices.Including a look at some dark times in our history when lynching was rampant and I will share a tragic story from my family some listeners may be familiar with. We’ll also hear some thoughts on Harlem history and Billie Holiday. Later we will have a short tribute to one of the original Supremes. All that tonight on Full Circle, I am your host, Freewillin Franklin coming to you from downtown Antioch Bay Miwok territory. Keep it locked right here to KPFA.
