The latest episode is all about train travel in the USA. I talk about taking a train from Charlotte, NC to New York, NY. In addition, I talk about some historic women in railroad. There’s even a quick story from an African-American Freight Train Engineer!
A quick weekend trip to Pensacola, Florida. I talk about food and drink in the Gulf Coast town. Also, I tell the story of Betty Skelton Franklin Erde, “First Lady of Firsts.”
When we were at the Beck Cultural Exchange Center, we heard about world re-nowned artists, the Delaney Brothers, Beauford and Joseph. Eventually the Beck Center will have a separate building dedicated to the brothers. But for now, I thought I would go down to the KMA and check out their art. It turns out that the KMA is going to be having an exhibit featuring Beauford next month. So, I’m going to wait to discuss the Delaney brothers. Instead, I’m going to talk about the female artists exhibited.
