Thoroughly enjoyed the interview. I plan on listening to it again.

So now someone has to come up with a tv series with Ms. Brown in mind. Something where she could vicariously fulfill her earlier wish of a career in the medicine and still be heroic. I like the idea of "Foxy Brown, MD."

It is always a great pleasure to hear from Pam Grier a brilliant, beautiful and wonderful woman/actress. As she appeared on Leonard Lopate's program today.

An amazing, wonderful update from such a special place on the American socio-timeline. What a gem of a time capsule.
