Byron Romanowitz and Duke Madison: crossing color lines in Lexington

Lexington's real-life jazz "ebony & ivory:" Byron Romanowitz & his mentor, Duke Madison, crossing the color line, doing their part to demolish segregation in Lexington. Here's a wider view.

I was honored and delighted to spend a couple of hours on the radio with Mr. Romanowitz and get to bask in his wit, facility for storytelling, and epic charm. What a guy. Here's the podcast of my Trivial Thursdays radio show with Byron.
