Biographical Conversations with... is an ongoing original production of UNC-TV and is funded by a generous grant from the A.J. Fletcher Foundation. The mission of the A.J. Fletcher Foundation is to support non-profit organizations in their endeavors to enrich the lives and well being of people in North Carolina. The Foundation was established as a result of the generosity of the late Alfred Johnston Fletcher (1887-1979). Although its primary focus has traditionally been on education, communications and the arts, the Foundation's board considers requests from agencies and organizations addressing a wide variety of social issues and charitable endeavors.
