On Wednesday, the Metro Council will again be asked to vote on an ordinance that will impact LGBT people in the capital city. The proposal, which is similar to laws passed in Shreveport and New Orleans, is a local law that bans discrimination of gays, lesbians and transgender people in employment, housing and public accommodations.
East Baton Rouge City Council Member C. Denise Marcelle who is backing the ordinance, and Reverend Reginald Pitcher debate the subject while the phone lines explode.
Stanley Nelson, Editor of the Concordia Sentinel, talks with Jim about his role in investigating the Civil Rights Cold Case murder of Frank Morris in Ferriday, La in 1964. Also, Baton Rouge Councilwoman C. Denise Marcelle of District 7 stops by the station to discuss a variety of issues concerning our city ranging from the HIV/AIDS rate to the proposed city of St. George and much, much more.
