Times noted are starting points of particular segments
Today we’ll hear from Durham’s own Branford Marsalis, world renowned jazz musician, and spokesman for the Smartest Card campaign for the State Library. We’ll also hear teachers’ reactions to a recent Training Institute sponsored by Archives and History, and we’ll learn about North Carolina culture in “on the street” interviews. September is Library Card signup month. In preparation for a kickoff event held Sept. 2, Marsalis recently spoke with Pam Jaskot of the State Library. This summer saw nearly 30 teachers from all across North Carolina come together at a Teacher Institute sponsored by the Division of Archives and History. Activities ranged from tours of historic sites to an overview of the return of North Carolina’s original copy of the bill of rights to presentations on best practices in the history classroom. We recently talked to some North Carolinians about their experiences with culture.
The podcast closes with the Branford Marsalis Quartet playing “B’s Paris Blues.” Originally from the Marsalis Music CD “Romare Bearden Revealed,” the selection is part of “N.C. In Tune,” a statewide celebration to honor and promote music and its contributions to the cultural life of the state.
