Charlotte Talks

A Purple State of Mind

May 23, 2008

A Purple State of MindOn this edition of Charlotte Talks, we meet former college roommates from Davidson College who met in 1985. It was the first year as a person of faith for one roommate, the last year for the other - this produced many discussions and arguments their sophomore year. After college, they lost touch and when they found each other years later, they never talked about those discussions until filming their documentary, "A Purple State of Mind." A conversation about faith, politics and lessons learned on Charlotte Talks. Guests:Craig Detweiler John MarksMore information about the film: www.purplestateofmind.com.

Rose Rock

Rose Rock A couple of weeks ago, Rose Rock, comedian Chris Rock's mother, was in town and was to join us on the show. We weren't able to do that interview live as planned, but talked to her later that day, and on this edition of Charlotte Talks, we'll air that conversation. Mike Collins and Rose Rock talk about what it takes to raise over a dozen children, keep a family together, and why Chris Rock still looks to his mother to gauge his success.
