A Century of "Herstory": Global Conflict Seen Through the Eyes of Women War Reporters
A history of the world at war from 1915 to the present as reported by 16 women correspondents and photojournalists. Women war correspondents – once permitted to do their jobs – offered unique perspectives on war. Whether embedded with combat soldiers, living among innocent civilians, or talking with folks back home, so-called “girl reporters” succeeded in getting their stories in front of Americans. Over the 20th century, these bold and daring women shared a singular ambition: to answer an inner call driving them to witness war firsthand, and to share what they learned via newspapers, magazines, radio, television, the internet, and social media.

The Courageous Chemistry of Dr. Percy Julian
This program introduces students to the life and achievements of Dr. Percy Lavon Julian, a plant chemist who became the first African-American chemist elected to the National Academy of Sciences. As the scientific heir to George Washington Carver, he synthesized chemical compounds from beans to treat rheumatoid arthritis (cortisone), blindness (physostigmine) and miscarriage (progesterone). Among his 105 patents was a firefighting chemical that saved sailors and airmen at war, as well as one that made book pages easier to turn. He became one of the first African-Americans to work in private industry, and eventually he built his own company.

100 Years of National Parks and How They Almost Didn't Happen
We may take America’s greatest parks for granted. But little more than 100 years ago, magnificent spots like Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon were fair game for hotel builders and hunters who nearly shot buffalo to extinction. In our eyes, it seems odd that a big game hunter grasped that the wilderness was a treasure for all Americans. The old hunter, who hung plenty of deer and buffalo heads on the wall, used his power to set aside millions of acres to create preserves, historic monuments, and national parks. His name was Theodore Roosevelt, and he was president of the United States.
