In 2017, Rihannon Giddens stopped by the World Cafe with her album, Freedom Highway. On that record, she went straight to the darkest parts of history, speaking for those whose voices have often being silenced – from slaves to the people of the civil rights movement, to contemporary victims of racism. We revisit that session again, on the next World Cafe.
World Cafe airs weekdays at 2:00 pm on KRCB-FM Radio 91 / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen live on-the-go with the FREE KRCB Mobile App! Download it today for your favorite mobile device.
