Seg. 1: Post Primary Feelings | Seg. 2: Gordon Parks x Muhammad Ali

Segment 1: How voters are feeling the day after the 2020 Missouri Democratic Primary.

Yesterday’s primary in Missouri and several other states may have been a turning point in the selection of a democratic nominee, but how we're feeling is a mixed bag. Here's just a sampling of what people expressed: disappointed, excited, frustrated, and indifferent.

  • Beth Vonnahme, associate professor of political science, UMKC

Segment 2, beginning at 19:40: Looking back at great men with the men who looked up to them.

An exhibit at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art has 55 photographs on view of Muhammad Ali taken by Gordon Parks. To understand the significance of both of their stories to young black men everywhere, we asked a martial artist and a filmmaker what they meant to them.

  • Kevin Willmott, film director and professor, University of Kansas
  • David Muhammad, head youth instructor, Integrity Martial Arts Academy

An earlier version of this post misstated the number of photographs in the exhibit. We've corrected the error.
