Andrew Young Jr. and Jesse Owens

Featured Audio

Former U-S Ambassador to the United Nations Andrew Young talks about the struggle minorities still face today.  He's in town to honor a fellow trailblazer--the late Congressman from Cleveland, Louis Stokes.

Jesse Owens remains one of the most admired names in sports--but much of that admiration came long after his triumph at the Olympics.  We'll examine a new movie that will bring his story to the big screen and the legacy he leaves behind for the athletes who followed him.

Guests: 

Andrew Young, Former US Ambassador to the UN 
Jeremy Schaap, ESPN, author of "Triumph" 
Aki Bradley, East Tech alum, former All-American sprinter
John Kerezy, Tri-C Professor
