Sophie’s Choice–Dubin vs. Kentridge


OK, maybe you won’t see that this as a win-win or lose-lose choice. It all depends on your outlook. But you can watch William Kentridge on WHYY (12) at 5 p.m. (i.e. in 40 mins.) Or you can listen to Murray Dubin and Dan Biddle interviewed by Guy Raz on NPR’s All Things Considered at 5:40 p.m. They will talk about their book about Octavius Catto and the battle for equality in Civil War America.

This will free you up to listen to Murray and Dan at 5:40. (For those of you who are wondering what I’m talking about, Murray is my husband).
