Maiden Alley Cinema hosts a series of music performances this weekend, welcoming back JD McPherson tomorrow night (Thursday) and on Friday a night music by Jack Grelle, Amy LaVere and The Hooten Hallers. Landee Bryant-Greene of Maiden Alley talks about the bands with Tracy Ross on Sounds Good and the partnership with the local chapter of the NAACP to show the film Racial Taboo, with an appearance by the director.

Be intentional. It isn't enough to feel in our minds a certain way about inqequality and injustice, but showing that feeling is so important, says Beth Khadem of the Paducah NAACP Racial Unity Group. She and Cal Ross, Executive Director of the Paducah Housing Authority, join Kate Lochte on Sounds Good to talk about reinvigorating the group with racial unity efforts in Paducah, including film and discussion at Maiden Alley Cinema and a "Race Story Rewrite" all-day workshop in May.
