Today on the 7th anniversary of the War in Iraq and the changing guard of seasons, Winter into Spring, we reflect transcendentally on how art heightens and expands conversations about life & death & life after death. Last week we spoke to director, Freida Lee Mock about Lt. Ehren Watada, the subject in her latest film. He was court marshaled for refusing to deploy to Iraq. Today we speak to a woman, Mrs. Mildred Dill'Ard who at 92 has lived through many wars and even more history as this young nation finds its true personality and rises to the greatness it is capable of. Mrs. Dill'Ard opens the show with cast and director of The Delany Sisters: First 100 Days: Monica Justice & Macia Branisel, alternating roles as "Bessie Delany," & director, Sean Vaughn Scott.
