Interviews with news makers and discussion of topics important to Southwest Michigan. Heard Wednesday mornings at 9:20. 

Earlene McMichael, WMUK

Nearly 25 years ago, Anita Hill became a household name overnight. She shared an explosive tale of workplace sexual harassment by a powerful man, bringing into open discussion a topic that had not been. For it, Hill was both praised and criticized, even receiving death threats. Rather than retreat, she's more vocal than ever, including speaking in Kalamazoo this week where she got a standing ovation as she walked onto the stage.

On WestSouthwest, Earlene McMichael speaks with Anita Hill, who came into the public spotlight when she accused  Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment during his confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court. And Gordon Evans talks with professor and author Doris Bergen who will discuss the Holocaust Thursday night at Kalamazoo College
