NPR’s Michele Norris’ Grace of Silence


    Hour 2

    Asking difficult questions is part of Michele Norris’ job: she’s co-host of NPR’s All Things Considered. After covering race relations in America during the 2008 Presidential election, Norris felt she couldn’t ask others about this topic until she understood how her own family has dealt with it. Part of examining her family’s roots and secrets is reconciling her navy veteran father’s shooting by a white policeman in 1946. Norris will come in to the Radio Times studio to discuss her new memoir, “The Grace of Silence.”
