By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – When the writer Dustin Lance Black first heard the story of Harvey Milk - it had already been more than a decade since the San Francisco politician had been assassinated. Black was raised in the LDS church - and hearing the story of an openly gay man was a revelation for him. It also gave him hope. Dustin Lance Black wrote the film Milk which opened in theaters Friday. Wednesday he joins Doug to talk about Harvey Milk's story and what it can still teach us 30 years after his death.
