Today we engage in a deep and enlightening conversation with the creators of the book, ‘Ghosts of Segregation: American Racism Hidden in Plain Sight.’ The discussion involves photographer Richard ‘Rich’ Frishman and author Dr. Brian Foster. They discuss the concept of their book touching upon the profound connection between places with racial significance across the United States and the prevalence of racism in today’s society.
