Interview with humorist Larry Wilmore Sunday at 6 p.m. on The Campbell Conversations

Tune into WRVO’s Campbell Conversations Sunday to listen as Maxwell Professor Grant Reeher interviews Larry Wilmore.

February is Black History Month, but in this edition of the Campbell Conversations, humorist Larry Wilmore explains why he’d rather that African-Americans got casinos instead of the celebration—which is also the title of his recent book (I’d Rather We Got Casinos, And Other Black Thoughts).  The Emmy and Peabody Award-winning writer, producer, and performer also discusses his experiences as the “senior black correspondent” for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.  Wilmore has written or produced for The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, The Bernie Mac Show, and The Office.

Listen in to the last edition of Campbell Conversations with Geriatric specialist Dr. Sharon Brangman as they talk about the trends in aging, the special health care needs of the elderly, and the ways that our medical system does, and does not, respond to them.

The Campbell Conversations

Sundays at 6:00 p.m. with Grant Reeher

Every week Grant Reeher, Director of the Campbell Public Affairs Institute at Syracuse University, leads a conversation with a notable guest. Guests include people from central New York – writers, politicians, activists, public officials, and business professionals whose work affects the public life of the community – as well as nationally-prominent figures visiting the region to talk about their work.

The Campbell Conversations are longer interviews which encourage the character of the interviewee to be exposed. This allows you to learn more about the person, how they got to where they are, and where they plan to go. Grant attempts to go beyond the usual press conference questions and sound bites, which usually accompany a discussion about his guests.

Podcasts of the show are available via iTunes.

If you have any questions about an episode or any comments for Grant, feel free to contact him by email at gdreeher@maxwell.syr.edu at your convenience.

Support for the The Campbell Conversations series on WRVO is provided by The Campbell Public Affairs Institute at Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship.
