Uncommon Vision

December 6 Podcast

Filmmaker Morgan Atkinson introduces his documentary of the writer and activist John Howard Griffin.
John Howard Griffin is known primarily as the author of Black Like Me, a seminal book in the history of the civil rights movement in which a white man dressed up as a black man and wrote about his experiences in the segregated south. But Griffin was also a war hero, a convert to Catholicism, a blind man who miraculously regained his sight and the onetime biographer of Thomas Merton. The documentary filmmaker Morgan Atkinson introduces his documentary of Griffin, "Uncommon Vision," which will air on Kentucky PBS on January 11 and is available for purchase on Atkinson's Web site.
