 Franklin McCain, civil rights activist and one of the Greensboro Four, died this month. 

His legacy is commemorated at the International Civil Rights Center and Museum at the Woolworth's in downtown Greensboro. And a decision by Governor Pat McCrory means the 12th congressional district seat vacated by democrat Mel Watt will remain open until the election in November. Host Frank Stasio gets the latest on these triad news stories from WUNC's Greensboro Bureau Chief Jeff Tiberii. 

Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
