Two Worlds

Hosted by
This show is built around a story by a reporter named Rich Robinson. His father's black, his mother's white, and they married during the civil rights movement, believing the whole nation was moving toward greater and greater integration, and that they were part of the great march of history. Then integration never really kicked in, in the way they'd imagined. After having three children, they divorced. Rich's mom went back to her segregated white world. His dad returned to his segregated black world. What they make of the experience, and what they say to their own children about marrying out of the race. And other stories.
