Furious Cool: Richard Pryor and the World That Made Him
Richard Pryor attracted admiration and anger in equal parts. He was a comedian who many consider the greatest ever, yet his triumphant stand-up work has been largely eclipsed by his mediocre movie output. His personal life was likewise something of a contradiction, because Pryor was a man of deep intelligence and sensitivity yet was also someone who could never seem to make the pieces of his life come together to create a whole. His was a fascinating, larger-than-life personality; he was as pivotal and essential a figure. Pryor the solo artist brought to a pop-obsessed generation the news that they had a past with deep roots that spoke to our shared humanity.
David Henry is a screenwriter and his brother, Joe Henry is a singer/songwriter as well as a music producer. This is their first book, and they are working on a screenplay based on Pryor's life and career.
Wanted: Live in Concert (also known as Wanted/Richard Pryor - Live In Concert is a comedy album by Richard Pryor.

This installment of The Forbidden Fruit will look into the systemic problem of racial profiling and unnecessary force used by police. A group that is suppose to serve and protect is becoming no more than a gang of organized violence, targeting mostly blacks in America. This episode comes in the light of the senseless murder of Eric Garner, but this kinda stuff isn't new, at least not to black folks. Police violence caught on tape can go back as far as Rodney King's chocking beating in California. Nothing has change since Richard Pryor spoke of Police choke holds in his 1979 comedy routine. What do we, as a people, do to combat this craziness? When you go out, who do you have to look out for more, the muggers and rapist or your boys in blue?
Call in, we'd like to know you think. Speak out and be heard on The Forbidden Fruit!
