    FRIDAY, JULY 31 ,2015....11;PM-11:30PM CST


    Abena Joan Brown, one of the early pioneers of African-American theater in Chicago and the president and chief executive officer of the eta Creative Arts Foundation for 40 years, died on Sunday. She was 87.


    l


    Articulate, passionate and intimidating to behold, Brown ran eta with uncompromising determination and old-fashioned formality, shepherding the organization to new facilities in an old window factory on S. South Chicago Avenue, near the corner of 75th Street, and always pushing for further growth


     


     


    As Brown often said in interviews, her impetus for starting eta was her own inability to find work as an artist: Its precursor was founded in 1969 by Brown, alongside Okoro Harold Johnson, Al Johnson and Archie Weston.


    Operating initially under the name Ebony Talent Associates, the group wanted to increase exposure and opportunities for African-American actors in Chicago. But Brown found that more training was needed for those actors, and thus eta was born.

    Minnesota dentist Walter Palmer, who faces poaching charges, paid $55,000 to a pair of local guides for the lion hunt earlier this month in the African nation.


    Auhorities charge the safari was more like a mob hit, with the unwitting 13-year-old king of the jungle known as Cecil enticed to his death on unprotected land outside Hwange National Park.

    Can Clean Eating Help You Avoid Sunburn?

    in Health

    It's summer time!  We are outside in the sun and getting our vitamin D, or so we think.  Often we slather on gobs of chemically laden sunblock to protect ourselves from getting burned.  Our bodies do not absorb Vitamin D if the suns rays do not reach our skin.  We are so paranoid about skin cancer or just burning from all the media hype we hear on TV.  It certainly is a threat but can we have our sun and vitamin D without the burn or threat of skin cancer?  Studies are showing that eating healthy, eating clean and green can reduce the chance of sunburn by keeping the skin hydrated and somewhat resistant to sunburn.

    Indycar's Simona de Silvestro, Catholicism history and Panther conservation

    in Travel

    On today’s show World Footprints explores the plight of the endangered Panther, we chat with one of the rising IZOD Indycar stars Simona de Silvestro, and we also view Catholicism through the lens with Father Robert Barron.  As a special bonus, we added some sound bytes and interviews from the DC Stop Modern Slavery walk to end human trafficking.


    Panthers once roamed the entire southeastern United States; from Florida to South Carolina and Louisiana.  However, the panther was added to the Endangered Species List in 1967 and today the remaining population is isolated in South Florida.   The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is at the forefront of the Panther conservation efforts and Park Ranger Sandy Mickey from the Florida Panther & Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuges joins us today to talk about some of these initiatives. 


    Then, we enjoyed a chat with one of the IZOD Indycar series rising stars, Simona de Silvestro.  Simona is one of a handful of female Indycar racers and she is one of the most prominent racecar drivers on the track.   She is the first woman in Atlantic Series history to have earned the most wins and pole positions, and the IZOD Indycar Rising Star Award.  Finally, we will talk to Father Robert Barron, the Francis Cardinal George Professor of Faith and Culture at Mundelein Seminary and a priest of the Archdiocese of Chicago, about his PBS series Catholicism. This documentary illustrates the history and treasures of a global religion shared by more than one billion people around the world by exploring art, architecture, literature, music and all the riches of the Catholic tradition.
