Tell Me More

M-Th 10-11 p.m.
Michel Martin

  Tell Me More is at the forefront of conversations Americans are having now—about themselves, their families, their neighborhoods and the world.

Tell Me More is energized to offer a platform to new voices on public radio and across social media, that connects communities of color with the traditional public radio audience. "Tell Me More lets me bring together two longtime passions," says Martin. "The intimacy and warmth you experience with powerful radio, and the lively, sharp debate that I enjoy having with friends of diverse backgrounds about things going on in the world."

Playing 'Crazy Eyes' Taught Actress 'It's OK To Be Just You'

Uzo Aduba plays Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren in Orange Is the New Black.
ID-PR

Originally published on Thu July 31, 2014 6:47 pm

Uzo Aduba channels many conflicting emotions as Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren on Netflix's original hit series Orange Is the New Black. The character is at once aggressive, tender, terrifying and vulnerable. That balancing act recently earned Aduba an Emmy nomination.

So it seems fitting that her full name, Uzoamaka, means "the road is good."

But she tells NPR's Michel Martin that she hasn't always been so comfortable with that name.

A very smart person I know, a long time civil rights activist, told me once that "gratitude is overrated."

Now, I know that sounds harsh, but what I think she meant was that some people, especially, in her view, women, are too often too quick to settle for less than they deserve. She was talking about people who are so conditioned to have nothing, that they are just too happy when they get even a little.
