Fatherhood And Families In Baltimore; High Art And Television; Larry Hogan Sr. On Political Career

Maurice Berger

The Center For Urban Families in West Baltimore works with fathers and their families to develop job skills and find employment. We talk with Joe Jones, founder head of the non-profit, about how its work has been informed by the recent unrest in the city.

Then, how did high art influence the early days of TV? We talk with Maurice Berger of UMBC about his new exhibition and book Revolution of the Eye: Modern Art and the Birth of American Television.

Plus, in July 1974 Maryland congressman Larry Hogan Sr., father of the current governor, was the first Republican on the House Judiciary Committee to vote for impeachment of President Richard Nixon. We talk with him about that decision, and about how it shaped his son’s aspiration for public service.
