Aired on Tuesday, May 12th.

The University of Tulsa College of Law's 20th Annual Buck Colbert Franklin Memorial Civil Rights Lecture was originally scheduled for earlier this year, but it was delayed due to inclement weather. It will now happen tonight, Tuesday the 12th, in an online-only presentation beginning at 6pm. Our guest, with whom we actually spoke earlier, will deliver this lecture: César Cuauhtémoc García Hernández is an Associate Professor of Law at the University of Denver. His talk is titled “Migrating to Prison: Immigration in the Age of Mass Incarceration” (which is also the title of his latest book).

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
