April 19, 2015: high school basketball in the days of Jim Crow.  We'll hear from some of the Promoters, Lawrence's all-black basketball team.  The Watkins Museum of History is hosting a panel of Promoters next week, moderated by retired KU professor Bill Tuttle.  We'll also hear about Hometown Teams, a traveling Smithsonian Institute exhibt making its way across Kansas.  Finally, we'll mark National Poetry Month by learning about Walt Whitman's visit to Kansas in 1879 and the effort to bring his autograph back to Lawrence.
