Our guest today is what Mr. Rogers would call a “helper”. I first saw William Sutton on Kentucky Educational Television, the PBS affiliate, where he was interviewed about his work with children and it was obvious that he was something special. William works in the children’s department of the Portland branch of the Louisville Free Public Library system. Portland is one of the largest neighborhoods in Louisville and one that has a long and rich history. In the late 1800s it had the first trolley line from downtown and was the welcoming home to many waves of immigrants including Irish and German. In recent years this neighborhood has hit hard times; it has one of the lowest income levels in the city, but it is experiencing a rebirth with numerous art galleries, stores, and restaurants coming to the area. Nowhere is the small community spirit more evident though than in its neighborhood library. William Sutton is a favorite face there and you will see why. His joy in his work is infectious. He talks to us about why being a black male in a female heavy field is important for children to see, how comic books built the basis for his literary life, and why black superheroes can be an inspiration for teens to find the strength in themselves.

Solutions To Violence First Steering Committee Interview 1- 13- 20 W - O Music~0 by FORward Radio
This is a rebroadcast of an interview we did in late October with Michael Drury, the artistic director of a Pandora Productions. I thought this would be a great time to rebroadcast because Pandora Productions has a new musical currently on the stage called Choir Boy that will be performed until January 25. This interview had an impact on me because it inspired me to see their show, Fun Home, which I liked so much that I was at the new show’s opening night last weekend. It completely opened my eyes to the incredible productions local theater can bring to the community. Do you love a good Broadway show? So does Michael Drury, the producing artistic director of Pandora Productions, a theater company solely dedicated to telling the stories of the LGBTQ Plus community. And this passion made him tenacious in pursuing the rights to produce Fun Home, a Broadway musical based on the critically acclaimed 2007 graphic memoir of the same name by Alison Bechdel, who is best known for her comic strip Dykes to Watch Out For. The play adaptation won the Tony award for Best Musical and Best Original Score. Pandora’s production will be the regional premiere of this play. Michael talks to us about the process theater companies go through to get rights to perform popular Broadway plays, why he feels its important to have an LGBTQ plus focused theater, and the innovative way the company is designing the Fun Home set to give a big nod to the original graphic novel.

We are so excited to introduce you to our guest today, Rheonna Nicole, a spoken word artist and poet. 4 years ago she started an all female poetry slam In Louisville KY called Lipstick Wars. She started in a small theater that holds 600. That filled up and the next year she filled another theater that held 1200. This year Lipstick Wars is being held in Whitney Hall at the Kentucky Center for the Arts, a venue that holds more than 2300 people. Rheonna is a woman who will not take no for an answer. She is an example of how persistence and dedication pay off.
