Sunday Morning Wake-up Call producer Dan Gould takes a look back at three stories from 2018 that are still relevant today.

In November 2018 residents of the state of Florida voted 65% to 35% to restore the rights of felons who have served out their prison time. But in Virginia, even after serving their time in prison, felons still cannot vote.

In our first story, Claire Gastanaga talked with Sunday Morning Wake-up Call host Rick Moore about her work with the Virginia Chapter of the ACLU to restore voting rights for Virginia felons.

Our second story comes from Carmenita Higginbotham who talks with Rick about the mysteries and history of the Disney corporation.

We close the program with three eye witness accounts from the August 12, 2017 Unite-The-Right rally in Charlottesville. Christina Rivera, Eze Amos, and Lynn Windsor recall their memories from that difficult day.

The Sunday Morning Wake-up Call is heard on 94.7 WPVC the Progressive Voice of Charlottesville, Sundays from 11 a.m. to noon.

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, David throws down with two righteous groups of guests visiting the show for the first time. First, we welcome Lisa Jevack, Assistant to the Director and Early Visions Coordinator of The Fralin Art Museum and Charlene Green, Manager of the the Charlottesville Office of Human Rights. The Fralin and the City are partners in The Signs of Change Project along with The Jefferson School African American Heritage Center and The Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative — a project that seeks to use art to raise the profile of African American history in Charlottesville history. Then — you maybe have seen him on the Downtown Mall — here, photographer Eze Amos steps out from behind the camera to talk about his artistic goals and how and why he came to focus on photographing people on the Downtown Mall. He is New City Arts’ current artist in residence, and you can see Eze’s work at his show, Eze Amos: Cville People Everyday. It’s art for the people and art about the people today on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown is heard on 94.7 WPVC the Progressive Voice of Charlottesville, Sundays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
