Back in the 1930s and 40s, Harlem was a place that was bubbling with creative energy, and one musician that reflected that energy was Fats Waller. We’ll hear about a revival of the musical revue that’s a tribute to Fats, called “Ain’t Misbehavin’”.
Host Richard Steele was joined at the shop by:
• Lorenzo Rush, Jr., from the cast of “Ain’t Misbehavin”
• Andrea Beschel, Marketing Associate at Porchlight Theatre (the presenters of the musical)
Plus, we talked about a program called Diverse Voices in Docs that’s training a new generation on the art of the documentary film. For that conversation, we were joined by:
• Raymond Lambert, who was a part of the first DVID fellowship class in 2013
• Recent Diverse Voices in Docs graduate Eleva Singleton
• DVID coordinator Justin Williams
