As 2017 wraps up, The State of Things staff goes “behind the glass” to join host Frank Stasio for conversations about the highlights of the year. Some of producer Charlie Shelton-Ormond’s favorite segments include a conversation with activist and community organizer Bree Newsome who removed the Confederate flag from the South Carolina statehouse in 2015.

He also chose a segment with North Carolina filmmaker Patrick Read Johnson about the time Johnson saw a rough cut of the original “Star Wars” in 1977 and a conversation with L.A. McCrae, owner of Black Star Line Brewing Company in Hendersonville, who specializes in sweet beers with brews named after civil rights activists.
