COVID Among Blacks, Masterlanplan, Wild Rivers Film Festival, 1001 Stories

Dana James, founder of Black Iowa News, gave us a report on low vaccination rates among Black Iowans (25%) as compared with White Iowans (46%) and her attempts to reach the unvaccinated.  We learned about the music group Masterplan playing at the music festival Shagstock near Boone this weekend from music reporter Greta Anderson.  Mike Kellner from Prairie Rivers described three films from the Wild and Scenic Film Festival taking place October 1.  Topping off the events this month, we heard from Loween Getter, director of "1001 Stories," a reader's theatre production of Webster City Community Theatre on September 10 and 11 to commemorate the 20th anniversary of 9/11.
