eTown Time Capsule: Mavis Staples and Donavon Frankenreiter

This week’s ‘look back’ at 2006 features a very special eTown episode, featuring the legendary Mavis Staples (Mavis’ father, Pops Staples was a frequent guest on eTown before his death in 2000, but this was Mavis’ first visit to eTown). Mavis brings her soulful songs to eTown, as well as her unique perspectives on working with Dr. Martin Luther King as a member of the Staple Singers and later, as solo artist. Surfer/Songwriter Donavon Frankenreiter shares the bill with Mavis in this can’t miss episode. It’s soul and surf, plus a great eChievement award story!
