The Children Of Children Keep Coming

Produced by

The Children Of Children Keep Coming

Russell L. Goings, the African-American pioneer of Wall Street and one of the founders of Essence Magazine, has now added another feather to his hat. He has created an epic poem called “The Children of Children Keep Coming: an Epic Griotsong.” Sketches of black history from the famed painter and collagist Romare Bearden complement his work. As the artist was dying of cancer, Romare Bearden made Russell a promise to use a portfolio of artwork in some way. It would take years before Russell decided what to do with this tremendous gift.


Double Life, One Mission

Rosemary Stewart-Stafford says she knows just how real and dangerous white supremacist groups can be. She infiltrated several of them, at first out of curiosity. Her cover was eventually blown publicly at an extremist convention. Rosemary now lives in isolation, out of concern for her safety. She tells Dick Gordon why she feels that her undercover work was worth the sacrifice and how her findings helped the FBI better understand hate groups in America.
