THIS MONTH THE COMMUNITY ON OUR HISTORY AND HERITAGE LOOKS AT OUR PEOPLE'S STRUGGLE IN YEARS LEADING UP TO THE CIVIL WAR AND RIGHT AFTER, DURING RECONSTUCTION AND THE EARLY YEARS OF JIM CROW. MANY FACES OF OUR PEOPLE COME TO THE FORE IN OUR FIGHT FOR FREEDOM AND INDEPENDENCE THAT DON'T GET A LOT OF RECOGNITION. AMONG THEM HENRY HIGHLAND GARNETT, WILLIAM WELLS BROWN, FRANCES HARPER, HARRIET JACOBS, HERY MCNEIL TURNER AND OF COURSE HARRIET TUBMAN AND FREDERICK DOUGLASS. BUT IT WAS NOT JUST THESE TREMENDOUS FIGURES THAT WERE IMPORTANT, BUT THE TIMES THEMSELVES. THE SPAN OF THESE YEARS (SOME 6O YRS. WILL BE FOCUSED ON) WERE SOME OF THE MOST TURBULENT, DIVISIVE AND HARROWING TIMES FOR OUR PEOPLE AND HELPED SHAPE IN LARGE PART WHO WE ARE TODAY.

This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery. This is a "we" recovery program, because it is in the "we," that we find the new "me."
We focus on the four A's of Recovery: Awareness, Acceptance, Action and Adaptation. This is a place for survivor's striving to become thrivers.

As Carl Sagan said, "You have to know the past to understand the present." History has shaped our nation's character, and our collective strength is measured in how we came together during our most challenging moments: the Civil War, World War I, Prohibition, World War II, the Dust Bowl, McCarthyism, the Cold War, the Challenger disaster, Operation Desert Storm, 9/11 and countless struggles before and since. But history also contains triumphs, from ending slavery to the moon landing to the fall of the Berlin Wall to Mars rover Curiosity. Join in discussion on these and more with historians, collectors, authors, professors and conspiracy theorists alike. Our hosts also show much support for our troops and military families. In fact, technology has played a big part in bringing soldiers closer to home, as they text, email and Skype from the front, and our â€œtalk to the troopsâ€ episodes are always inspiring.
