Episode 82: A Case of U(Conn)

This week, we’re celebrating the 50th anniversary of Joni Mitchell’s album “Blue” with music professor Peter Kaminsky, who has organized a virtual conference at UConn to explore the legacy of the landmark recording; we’re talking with Aswad Thomas ’15 MSW, national director of Crime Survivors for Safety and Justice, about how his experience as a victim of gun violence led him to a life of advocacy and activism; and we’re going back to the 1930s to meet Harrison “Honey” Fitch, the first Black basketball player in UConn history, and the ugly encounter with racism he experienced that made national headlines.
