The Peetes spend some time talking with callers, discussing the latest news and sharing the details of their social calendar. Their weekend plans include a trip to New York City to see the Broadway production of George Stevens Jr.'s Thurgood, starring Tony® winner and Oscar® nominee Laurence Fishburne.
Holly says the one-man show, based on the life of civil rights great and Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, will expose a wider audience to the extraordinary life of this African-American figure. "He's such a phenomenal man, and we just are not holding him in high enough esteem," Holly says. "So hopefully Laurence Fishburne will get his name back out there, and we'll do our part … to educate everybody—hip everybody—to an American hero that we just don't talk enough about."
