Doctor/Poet Neal Hall

The title of Neal Hall's book alone will make some people flinch: "Nigger For Life." 

But the book of poetry lays out Dr. Hall's feelings about his hard work to get into and through medical school, and his feelings about how society rewarded him--or not--for his work. 

His perception: de facto slavery still exists in America.

Neal Hall joins us in studio to talk poetry and life.
