Some months back JTA sought an interview with Barack Obama’s controversial ex-pastor Jeremiah Wright. We were told by Trinity United Church of Christ that the pastor wasn’t giving interviews. Well, Wright is staying quiet no longer.
On Sunday night, he got a standing ovation from 10,000 attendees at an NAACP dinner in Detroit (video here).
Last week, he sat down with Bill Moyers of PBS for an broadcast interview. (Video and transcript here).
And today Wright spoke this morning to the National Press Club in Washington (audio link here.).
