JoAnn Hardesty Interview

program: 
Between Us
program date: 
Fri, 01/23/2015
Depending on who you talk to, longtime Portland activist JoAnn Hardesty's installation as president of the Portland NAACP is either a blessing or a nightmare.  This local civil rights icon's assumption to the office was compared by one post to the impact of an incoming artillery shell.  Don Merrill talks with Ms. Hardesty about how she's focused on helping the organization renew its tarnished image by cleaning house, setting new standards and following the first rule of getting yourself out of a hole; stop digging.
