Check out my interview with Raleigh NPR broadcaster Ben Bradford who won his first award at the Edward Murrow Awards Ceremony for his piece entitled “Moral Mondays.” His segment told the story behind the North Carolina civil disobedience protests in response to issues within the government including: unfair treatment, discrimination, and adverse effects of government legislation. These protests launched a grassroots social justice movement that is currently spreading through Georgia and South Carolina.
