In a special edition of the roundtable discussion, Ed Gordon hears from three of the first 12 Alphonse Fletcher Fellows. They each receive a $50,000 grant for "work that contributes to improving race relations in American society and furthers the broad social goals of the U.S. Supreme Court's Brown v. Board of Education decision of 1954." Guests: Deborah Willis, professor in the photography and imaging department at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts; Kathleen Cleaver, senior lecturer in African American Studies at Yale University and senior lecturer at Emory University's School of Law; and Robert P. Moses, founder and president of the Algebra Project in Cambridge, Mass.
