Today, we climb into the bell tower at Holy Trinity Cathedral to meet a bell ringer who's been cultivating his craft since childhood and is passing it on to the next generation. Then, we meet Wayne Harris, who wrote and stars in the play "Train Stories," about three African-American men on a train ride, figuring out their place in a 1948 America.
