I believe I've written here earlier about the public radio program The Story. In fact I know I have. It's the best radio show, currently running, of which I know. In each show, host Dick Gordon takes apart one story told by a person or group of people about their lives, in intimate detail. Gordon is, far and away, the best interviewer working in public radio, but he'll always be small time because he avoids the soundbite programming which characterizes even public radio today.
Today's show particularly moved me. It's the story of Alvin and Omelia Garner, the first interracial (and by interracial, I mean black and white) couple to be legally married in Orange County North Carolina, forty years ago today. Still together, Alvin and Omelia talk about the terrible challenges they faced even in one of the most progressive counties in the South (Orange County is Chapel Hill and its even more progressive cousin Carrboro, the Paris of the Piedmont), the divisions their marriage caused in their families, standing together against social prejudice, raising their children, and slow progress in the area toward a life which is more accepted but still isn't deemed normal. All of this is in a place that's about as left-wing as Berkeley in most other respects.
I can't transcribe a sixty minute radio show, but you can listen to it at the link above, and if you enjoy a good radio interview you should.
Some time ago Ken posted quite movingly about the seminal Supreme Court case Loving v. Virginia, one of the Court's greatest decisions, which struck down "miscegenation" laws of the sort that would have wound the Garners in prison at worst or invalidated their marriage at best. Mildred Loving isn't around to give radio interviews, but the Garners lived through her experience at the same time, and this is as close as you'll get to her on your radio or computer.
