East Texas Hot Links

SHARE East Texas Hot Links

In “East Texas Hot Links”, a play by Eugene Lee, seven strong willed neighbors join forces to protect one of their own. The year is 1955, and times are changing in the Jim Crow South. But for all that changes, some things remain the same. We talked about the play, and how some of its themes connect with today’s realities. Host Richard Steele was joined by: • “East Texas Hot Links” director Ron OJ Parson, and • Alfred Wilson, who plays Columbus Frye Then, we revisited a story of learning to heal through the art of Latin drumming. Plus, we heard about an artist learning to push forward towards her dreams. For those stories, we were joined by Vocalo Storrytelling Workshop Alumni: • Brittney Leanne Williams • Gloria Guaderrama
