The Living in Divided States exhibit has been in display at Antioch College's Herndon Gallery since December.  It explores concepts of diversity and division in post-election America through a variety of art forms and activities.  The Herndon Gallery's Creative Director Jennifer Wenker and Ashleigh DuBois, Assistant Director for Diversity and Inclusion for the Coretta Scott King Center, joined WYSO's Niki Dakota in  studio to talk about two upcoming Divided States events:  a performance from Dayton Contemporary Dance Company's Crystal Michelle Perkins on January 26th at the Herndon Gallery and the first of two Friday Forums on Living in Divided States at the Coretta Scott King Center, January 27th.

Born a Hoosier, but only living there in spurts, Niki Dakota spent much of her young life moving around the United States with her archeologist mother. Throughout these years, there was always a ukulele somewhere close at hand. By the time the family settled in Cincinnati, Ohio, Ms. Dakota found herself in pursuit of professional music-making as she headed-up the Alterna-Folk band, Plow On Boy. In the course of her first live radio interview to promote the band, Niki’s keen excitedness manifest itself in extreme chattiness. At the conclusion of the segment, the DJ closed the mic and said, “You need to be in radio."  That was in 1990.
