Celebrating MLK. This past Friday, Boston unveiled a monument honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Coretta Scott King. “The Embrace” sculpture embodies a hug Dr. King shared with his wife after he won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964. Nonviolent protests and campaigns for racial justice by Dr. King led to the civil rights movement's success. Joining Jordan to talk more about the work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is Ryan Hendrickson, Assistant Director for Manuscripts at the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center at Boston University.
Blue Monday. It is suggested that the third Monday in January is the most depressing day of the year and was coined “Blue Monday” in 2004 by psychologist Cliff Arnall. The bills from the December holiday shopping sprees are starting to file in, and the abundance of overcast days isn’t helping matters. Tonight, Jordan discusses seasonal affective disorder and depression with Jerrold F. Rosenbaum, M.D., Psychiatrist-in-Chief Emeritus and Director of the Center for the Neuroscience of Psychedelics at Massachusetts General Hospital, and Stanley Cobb Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.
Our Fascination with Flight. Lighter-than-air crafts date back to the 1890s when Alberto Santos-Dumont started tinkering with hot air balloons and motor-powered blimps. Fast forward to the Wright Brothers and modern aviation, and you see human’s continued fascination with flight! Tonight, Jordan chats with Jeff Rapsis, Executive Director of the Aviation Museum of New Hampshire, about how they are preserving the history of aviation.
