Westerhout, Bell, and Blades
Spark follows photographer Katherine Westerhout inside a forgotten West Oakland landmark -- the 16th Street Train Station. Once the terminus of the Transcontinental Railroad, this Beaux Arts gem has been off-limits since 1989, but that might be about to change.
Next, comedian W. Kamau Bell shares his wry observations on race and his personal stories about being black in an Obama-era America.
Then, meet Wil Blades, a virtuoso at playing a soulful instrument from a bygone era, the B3 organ.
