The H Spot guest - Philip Hirschkop

This is the first part of an in-depth interview with Civil Rights hero, veteran, activist, advocate, and my dad, Philip Hirschkop. Some of what we covered in this episode include:

  1. Were you a trouble maker as a kid?
  2. His experience as a Green Beret and how he got in there but never got promoted. 
  3. Why go from a Civil Engineering degree to Law School.
  4. You'll hear the story about congressperson that showed up at a protest tent and asked everyone to leave.
  5. The Loving case chronology and how it flowed.  What were the Lovings like? How accurate was the Loving Story Movie?
