  25. Thurgood Marshall
    Before and after viewing/listening guide. Many of the audio programs on C-Span are not available after broadcast, unless they are placed online for some special purpose.. Since I missed this program, I conducted a search on the site to see if infomation was recorded elsewhere on Marshall. Using "Marshall" as a key word for the search, I discovered that a collection of oral arguments before the Supreme Court are available for listening (but are not indexed on a special page). In fact, C-Span has recordings of the presentations going back to 1955. There is an "archive page", but it features a current selection and does not index those from the past. To avoid missing special Radio programs, see the Program Grid, and note that starting a search at a large site will often reveal information gems that are not indexed.

  60. The American Image: Portrait of Black Chicago
    Great photo essay in three parts by John H. White (a photographer with the Chicago Daily News) who worked for the government ( the EPA DOCUMERICA project) photographing the African American community in Chicago. With the recent drop in prices for digital cameras, I am tempted to buy one and combine it with the purchase of a new computer. Tight budgets in most schools in Wisconsin make it almost impossible to purchase such items. Guess most teachers are going to have to dig in their own pockets for classroom tools or do without. I mention the camera thing because visiting sites such as this can generate those "teachable moments" when a group of students decide they want to do something of a similar nature. Students in Wisconsin (because of restrictions passed in previous State Legislatures) may have to do without such frills. Most schools have to attempt to pass bond issues to repair the roof leaks and patch the holes on the tennis court, and many of those bond issues are not passing.

    Can architecture impact our lives? Explore this site and see. An editorial note. If we have the ability to create conditions/spaces that leave those who occupy those spaces absolutely helpless to defend themselves and their children, we should also have a responsibility to create visual and physical environments that inspire and nurture. The expectation that a whole segment of our population can somehow rise above an architectural environment that is pored in concrete, and a social/political environment that is almost as hardened, is insane and ignorant.
