Also on the program, students at Binford Elementary School get lessons in making art from what is most likely southern Indiana’s most abundant natural resource.
Then we’ll find out how archivists and researchers are preserving recorded heritage at Indiana University’s Black Film Center and Archive.
And finally, a conversation with one of the stars of the IU Ballet Theater’s spring production An American Evening.
