Host John Huey sits down for a wide-ranging conversation with author and screenwriter Lolis Eric Elie. In a frank discussion that touches on race, cultural traditions, and American history, Elie talks about the influence of his father, civil rights attorney Lolis Edward Elie, and “the difference between symbols and substance.” Elie, a New Orleans native, also reveals how he found a touch of the Crescent City out West, talking with chef Marcus Christiana-Beniger, who co-founded a restaurant in Los Angeles’ Historic Chinatown called the Little Jewel of New Orleans.
