Love and Humanity

Season 1 Episode 105 | 26m 46s

Composer and intermedia artist Lyn Goeringer humanizes an often forgotten segment of our society by shedding light on the murders of transgender women of color in Detroit through the lens of the streetlights meant to keep them safe. Jazz bassist and composer Rodney Whitaker plays his tune “First Love, Only Love” which began as a love song to his wife and evolved into a message of love for humanity
