Out of 895 slots to attend the prestigious Stuyvesant High School, only 7 Black and 21 Hispanic students were accepted. Why? We take a deep dive into the racial divide that exists in New York’s specialized schools and look for solutions. Rock and roll icon Graham Nash is back with a preview of his upcoming shows right here in our area. It’s been 25 years since Disney classics hit the Great White Way. We’ll look back at their impact on the theater and New York City.

Aired on September 16, 2019.
