Strange Fruit: What's Going on with Fourth Street Live and Jason Osborne?
This week, former Louisville Cardinals basketball player Jason Osborne was arrested after an incident at Fourth Street Live—which led to concern from Louisville's African-American leaders about discrimination at the downtown entertainment district. WFPL reporter Devin Katayama joins the Strange Fruit team to talk about what happened and past issues at Fourth Street Live.
Also, NBA player Jason Collins came out in a Sports Illustrated cover story.
And Steve Crump, producer of the documentary Forgotten at the Finish Line, discusses the history of African-American jockeys in the Kentucky Derby—as Goldencents jockey Kevin Krigger attempts to become the first African-American jockey to win the race since 1902.
