Publisher's Summary

South African journalists Howard Barrell and Mondli Makhanya and remembering mouth organist Larry Adler on this edition of Fresh Air. Howard Barrell and Mondli Makhanya talk about race and racism in their country in light of the upcoming UN conference on World Racism, which will be held in South Africa. Barrell is editor of Johannesburg's Daily Mail & Guardian. Mondli Makhanya is the Political Editor of the Sunday Times. Mouth organist Larry Adler died recently at the age of 87. He got started on vaudeville, and went on to perform with Fred Astaire, George Gershwin, Jack Benny and many others. When George Gershwin first heard Adler play "Rhapsody in Blue" on the mouth-organ he said, "It sounds as if the goddamned thing was written for you." Adler also played classical music and performed with a number of symphony orchestras. Adler moved to England after being blacklisted during the McCarthy hearings.
