Interview with Travis Watkins

Kansas City, MO – Recent KU graduate Travis Watkins distinguished himself as a poet, scholar and defensive tackle on the football team during the past four years. Last summer, he won a fellowship to study the experiences of black Vietnam veterans through oral histories and literary analysis. As he was packing up his apartment to leave Lawrence, he shared some of his observations on African Americans in the military with KCUR's Sylvia Maria Gross.
