Apropos of Something hosts Ellen Daniels and Nancy Laurence talk to Dr. Patrice Preston Grimes, Associate Dean in the Office of African American Affairs and Curry School of Education professor at the University of Virginia. Dr. Grimes expertise is desegregation and education policy. Also, documentary filmmaker Lorenzo Dickerson, whose work focuses on African American issues from an historical perspective. His latest film is Albemarle’s Black Classrooms. Also, Kibiriti Majuto, a high school student and activist who’s a refugee from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and award-winning author, humor essayist Deborah Prum.

Why Apropos of Something? Because these queasy times call for humor and information.
