Public broadcasting stations like WYSO have large libraries of stories that aired years ago, but often that audio can't be accessed because the archives are on tape, a format most stations aren't using regularly. The Corporation for Public Broadcasting, in cooperation with WGBH Boston and the Library of Congress, decided that it was time to bridge that technological gap.
Zeb Reichert spoke with Karen Cariani of WGBH and Neenah Ellis of WYSO to learn more about this national undertaking known as the American Archive project
In 1965 Dr, Martin Luther King gave the commencement speech at Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio. Ten year-old Jalyn Jones Roe was there and that day changed her life. Roe's story will be heard as WYSO public radio presents Dr. King's address, in its entirety.
Roe lives in Yellow Springs today, and works with "The Springfield Community Empowerment Program," a faith based organization that works with at-risk youth and the disadvantaged in Springfield. Her work today, she believes, comes from the community values of diversity and inclusion that she learned in Yellow Springs
