Activist and playwright Janet Langhart Cohen is used to grappling with racial and ethnic tension. A protege of Martin Luther King, she later went on to co-author a memoir about interracial relationships with her husband, former US Senator (R-ME) and former U.S. Secretary of Defense William Cohen. Kojo talks with her about her latest work, a play exploring the common threads of struggle in the African American and Jewish experience.
