MICHEL MARTIN, HOST: And finally today, by now, most people probably know that Black and brown musicians heavily influenced - indeed, helped create - American country music. But by now, its also become clear that with a few exceptions, the contributions of these artists to the genre have been ignored, downplayed and even actively resisted. But a new show on Apple Music hopes to change that by placing a spotlight on the contributions of these musicians.

Copyright 2020 NPR. To see more, visit MICHEL MARTIN, HOST: On Tuesday, Scotland became the first country to guarantee that feminine hygiene products will be made freely available to anybody who needs them. The news was celebrated by activists who have argued for years that these essential products are too expensive and too difficult for many women and girls to access. So that got us thinking about what things are like here in the U.S., especially since the coronavirus pandemic has thrown many peoples budgets and schedules into chaos. So we called Jennifer Weiss-Wolf. She is the co-founder of Period Equity. That is an organization founded to ensure accessible, affordable and safe menstruation products in this country.
