The Power of Art
Wednesday, September 13, 2017

Richmond's Bryan Park closed for several hours on September 7 after activists hung eight clown effigies dressed in Klu Klux Klan robes from a tree. The incentive for the demonstration, according to activists, was to protest against white nationalism. Richmond leaders condemned the display; what do you think of the art?  Later, Falling Man faced backlash when it debuted in the New York Times on September 12, 2001. We're talking with the photo's taker, Richard Drew, about the power of a photo. Join us at 440-2665 or 1-800-940-2240.
