WLRN report on Anthony Russell

This morning WLRN presented a wonderful four-minute profile of Anthony Mordechai Tzvi Russell.

"This weekend in downtown Miami,Temple Israel is hosting a concert of Yiddish folk music. Nothing unusual there. Except -- the singer is black and grew up going to church.

This is the story of how a blind date, the opera and a Coen Brothers movie turned a guy named Anthony Russell into Anthony Mordechai Tzvi Russell."

Please listen to this great piece. Thanks to reporter Adianna Prothero.
