Live at 9: Dr. James Netters, looking past race & the Memphis Farmer’s Market

Memphis pastor retires

A Memphis pastor who worked behind the scenes to workout an agreement during the Sanitation Workers Strike of 1968 is now stepping down. He served as one of the top pastors in town for nearly five decades.

Dr. James Netters worked along side Dr. Martin Luther King and is here in the studio with Dr. Melvin Watkins.

Darryl Davis and Scott Shepherd talk about how they became close friends on Live at 9.
