History Meets Hip-Hop host Syreeta Gates, who can also be heard weekly on New York's WBAI public radio, pays homage to Black History Month via its founder, Carter G. Woodson—and his slew of equally accomplished namesakes. "Godwyn, Dwayne, Betty, Bunchie and Shawn. What do they have in common?" she asks before launcing into the infectious Lil' Wayne track Mr. Carter. "As Kanye West said, 'I make black history every day. I don't need a month.' And we don't. But we are still appreciative," she adds. "What bridges hip-hop for me are four people in three generations: My grandmother, born in 1926, as part of the great migration from North Carolina landed in Harlem. My mother was born in 1950, in the era of the Black Panters, Young Lords and Motown sound. And then my uncles, born in the late 60s, grew up in the 80s—the real hip-hop era."
African American Conservatives host Marie Stroughter goes one on one with Carolyn Maull McKinstry, eyewitness to the 1963 Ku Klux Klan perpetrated 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in Birmingham, Ala., which claimed the lives of four of her fellow paritioners: Addie Mae Collins, 14, Denise McNair, 11, Carole Robertson, 14, and Cynthia Wesley, 14. "It was just an ordinary Sunday. What were excited that it was Youth Sunday, which meant we were in charge of every aspect of church that day, from reading the scripture, to reading announcements to bringing the morning message," says the civil-rights activist, whose 2011 memoir, While the World Watched: A Birmingham Bombing Survivor Comes of Age during the Civil Rights Movement, recounts the horrific event. "There were two things on my mind that morning: That I was the Sunday school secretary, and I really was proud of having that job, because I was only in the seventh grade. And the second thing was that Cynthia's father was my elementary school principal, and Cynthia and I were in a social club together. We'd visit at each other's homes and drink punch and play records and just laugh and act silly as girls do. But that week, we'd placed an add in the Birmingham World newspaper announcing that the Cavalettes Club would meet Sept. 15. And then it gave you the names of the girls in the club, but it also said don't forget to bring your $3—we were ordering caps and T-shirts for everybody. So I was excited when I went to church that morning. Then all I remember after the bombing was that I went from dancing on tiptoes to just numb that evening and night and on into the week."

Film Festival Radio host Janice Malone delves into the budding career of Marcus Paulk, who plays David 'Deke' Watkins in George Lucas' WWII flick Red Tails, which tells the story of the Tuskegee Airmen, the first African American military aviators in US history. "We shot this film in Prague, Czech Republic, for about three and a half months. The day after we got there, after one night of sleep, we hopped in a van at the crack of dawn and went to boot camp for about a week and a half—military training, marching, nine-mile hikes in the mud with packs on, building tents blindfolded," says the Moesha cast member. "Working with George Lucas, you could only expect that it was going to be intense. So we didn't know exactly what to expect. But we got to go up in a P-51 fighter plane before we actually shot the film. When I did that it was like, Wow this is something I've never had to do for a role. It was better than any roller-coaster you've ever been on."

In review the NYPL.
The NYPL is a great place due the free classes, free programs, and free exhibits in the Bronx, Manhattan and Staten Island.
Today our showcase is the Lincoln Center Public Library - Performing Arts Plaza 111 Amsterdam Ave, NY, NY 10023-7498.
The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts houses one of the world's most extensive combinations of circulating, reference, and rare archival collections in its field. These materials are available free of charge, along with a wide range of special programs, including exhibitions, seminars, and performances. An essential resource for everyone with an interest in the arts—whether professional or amateur—the Library is known particularly for its prodigious collections of non-book materials such as historic recordings, videotapes, autograph manuscripts, correspondence, sheet music, stage designs, press clippings, programs, posters and photographs.
Today we will go to the location and tape live from the Lincoln Center.
We will take a look at the Exhibits!
