D. L. Richardson describes life in the segregated South.

The major Martin Luther King Day celebration in Ashland features a collective keynote speaker: "Universes," the innovative resident theater company at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. 

The group amazed audiences with the 60s-revolution retrospective "Party People" a few years ago, and stuck around to create more work that goes beyond simple entertainment. 

And they work in so many genres: theater, poetry, jazz, and hip-hop at the top of the list. 

Two of the group members--Stephen Sapp and Mildred Ruiz-Sapp visit The Exchange.
