Episode 60: Germaine Murray and Dana Levin Talk "Whitman: Up Close"

Stef Russell talks to Maryville University's Germaine Murray (Professor of English & Humanities) and Dana Levin (Distinguished Writer-in-Residence) as they walk us through "Whitman: Up Close," an exhibit at the May Gallery. The show, on view through October 18, is part of "Whitmania!", a semester-long celebration of all things Whitman on the occasion of his 200th birthday. Germaine and Dana talked about why Whitman considered himself more printer than poet, his love of technology, and his surprising ties to St. Louis. Note: because this is a field recording, there's some mic noise throughout, most noticeably at the halfway point; rather than pull that section (where mic noise overlaps voices), we left it intact, because we didn't want to lose the commentary about naked Walt Whitman (!) and the photographer Thomas Eakins. "Whitmania!" wraps up on November 3 with "Whitman Set to Song," a concert in the Maryville University Auditorium.Whitmania! https://www.maryville.edu/whitmania/https://stlouispoetrycenter.org/whitmania/The Morton J.

Episode 58: The Griot Museum of Black History's Impact HIV/AIDS Initiative

In 1969, a St. Louis teen named Robert Rayford became the first person in America to die of HIV/AIDS. His story was the starting point for Impact HIV/AIDS, a longterm initiative launched last year by the Griot Museum of Black History. The project combines art, culture, history, public health events, lectures and more, with the goal of documenting and raising awareness of the ongoing impact of HIV/AIDS on St. Louis' African American community. Stef Russell spoke with museum founder and executive director Lois Conley and museum assistant Ian Darnell about past events, the exhibit opening later this fall, and the future of the project.https://www.thegriotmuseum.comhttps://www.facebook.com/TheGriotTellsOurStory/https://www.stlmag.com/history/architecture/the-historic-griot-museum-hosts-events/http://drainmag.com/aids-1969-hiv-history-and-race/?fbclid=IwAR0kmBuWHw6pvr8BlQGnom_eHtY13Q6pGgKWASEgKxd10GYS_lGMGbxt1yM#ftn16https://www.kff.org/hivaids/fact-sheet/black-americans-and-hivaids-the-...
