Some of y’all visited this thread where I was first invited, then bumped from NPR’s “On Point” show.
Well, this morning I got e-mails and calls from the producers at “Talk of the Nation.” They wanted me to come on this afternoon to discuss Black Marriage Day (!!!). This time I didn’t get bumped and actually did a live call-in segment for about 15 minutes.
I thought it was pretty mellow and I stuck to the knitting, so to speak. I did get a couple of angry e-mails because I apparently didn’t rage against Black people not wanting to commit to marriage, nor did I advocate marriage well enough. Sheesh.
You be the judge. Here’s the link if you’re interested: http://www.npr.org/2011/03/24/134827591/promoting-marriage-in-the-black-community
