May 2, 2021
Inquiry welcomes back writer and historian Jill Watts. She is a Professor of History at California State University. Her new book is a compelling account of the African Americans who worked hard to effect real and permanent political change during the Franklin Delano Roosevelt administrations. Professor Watts’ “must-read” book is: “The Black Cabinet: The Untold Story of African Americans and Politics During the Age of Roosevelt.”
Tonight on Inquiry we talk with poet Tony Gloeggler about his latest collection of poems “What Kind of Man.”. His narrative poems are unlike anything you have read. He has managed group homes for the developmentally disabled for over forty years and has had open-heart surgery and a kidney transplant and all those experiences, and much more, can be found in the poems in this collection.
