A Conversation with Louis Stokes

Northeast Ohio has lost a political icon. Louis Stokes was the first black Ohioan elected to Congress. Now he's one for the ages. Wednesday on The Sound of Ideas, we recall a conversation Mike McIntyre had with Stokes a few days before his 88th birthday. As we mourn the death of Louis Stokes, we remember what energized his life. Join us.  Program first aired January 8, 2013. 

Louis Stokes, Congressman 1969 to 1999
