*The Sept 13 premiere of Ed Gordon’s news magazine show on Bounce TV will feature his exclusive and emotional interview from Ferguson, Missouri with five Mothers of The Movement, African-American women whose children have been shot, with four killed, in acts of violence: Sybrina Fulton (Trayvon Martin), Lucia McBath (Jordan Davis), Lezley McSpadden (Michael Brown), Wanda Johnson (Oscar Grant) and Marian Tolan (Robbie Tolan).
Gordon also visits with Nate Parker and the cast of “The Birth of a Nation.” The director and star of the film about Nat Turner’s slave rebellion discusses his passion for the project and how many are seeing this film as “an agent of change,” especially during a critical time in our society. The segment will also explore the controversy surrounding Parker’s past, according to a press release from Bounce TV.
In addition, Gordon sits down with singer-songwriter-actor Maxwell. The multiple Grammy-winner opens up about his life, his music and his activism in a rare one-on-one interview.
“Ed Gordon” premieres Tues. Sept. 13 at 10 p.m. on Bounce TV.
