Morning Edition and All Things Considered Team Up for Collaboration on Race

On Thursday, September 11, All Things Considered host Michele Norris and Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep talk with a cross-section of residents of York, Pennsylvania, about race - both in politics and in their everyday lives. Located in rural Central Pennsylvania, York is typical of many places in the U.S. It's a mix of urban, suburban and agricultural; blue and white collar; racially and economically diverse. York gave the world York Peppermint Patties and still makes Harley-Davidson motorcycles. And while the town has a history of racial struggles, residents say things are improving.

Catch the story on both shows on Thursday, September 11 on WGVU AM & FM. Morning Edition airs 5 - 9 a.m. and All Things Considered airs 4 - 6:30 p.m.
