This week on Tuned In we talk about Civil Rights. The Tennessee State Museum has opened an exhibit entitled, We Shall Not Be Moved. The 50th Anniversary of Tennessee’s Civil Rights Sit-Ins. I had the chance to speak with the curator of the exhibit, Graham Perry, and Dr. Allen Cason, who took part in the Sit-ins over 50 years ago!
Here is a picture of us in the Lightning 100 studios:

We recorded a 20 minute interview, which I edited, that will air this Sunday morning at 7am on Lightning 100. 100.1 FM in the Franklin / Nashville, TN area and online at http://Lightning100.com

We also recorded an additional interview which I will post here soon. In part two, Dr. Cason shared his experiences in greater detail. Including some of the tough times he encountered after being sent to prison. Graham Perry also asked Dr. Cason many interesting and historical questions in the second part of our interview.
