The three episodes will premiere February 17th and 24th and March 24th. The premiere event will be held Tuesday, February 11th at the LPB Telecommunications Center at 7733 Perkins Road in Baton Rouge. To reserve your tickets, call (225) 767-4214.
THE SPOTLIGHT IS ON INSPIRATIONAL STUDENTS
Often the students who do exceptionally well in the classroom or make a huge difference in their community do not receive the recognition they deserve. That’s why LPB and the Rotary Club of Baton Rouge created the Louisiana Young Heroes Awards. Now in its 19th year, the awards honor students in grades 7-12 who have excelled in the classroom, served their community or shown great courage in overcoming adversity in their own lives.
HAVE A SUPER TIME AT THE BATON ROUGE CHRISTMAS PARADE
PBS Kids star Super WHY! will be the Children's Grand Marshall in the Cortana Kiwanis Christmas Parade. The parade rolls through downtown Baton Rouge on Saturday, December 14th starting at 5:30PM.
EXPERIENCE HISTORY AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
What history exists in your neighborhood? With American Experience's Mapping History app, you can relive the history of the abolitionist movement by exploring places central to the nation's anti-slavery effort. Retrace the steps taken by 10,000 freed slaves as they celebrated in Charleston, SC shortly after Robert E. Lee's surrender at Appomattox. In Nantucket, watch a film clip from "The Abolitionists" documentary detailing the moving story of Frederick Douglass' childhood spent in slavery. In Philadelphia, layer an image of Pennsylvania Hall engulfed in flames in 1838 over the structure that stands there today, and see for yourself how it has transformed over time.
