Great journeys often start with a single question. For D. K. Evans, a newly married professional in the Christian-dominated South, that question was, ´´Why Do I Believe in God?” That simple query led him on a years-long search to better understand the nature of religion and faith, particularly as it applies to the Black community. While many taking such a journey today might immerse themselves in the writing of Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Sam Harris, and Christopher Hitchens, Evans took inspiration not only from John Henrik Clarke, Yosef-Ben Jochannan, Hubert Harrison, and John G. Jackson, champions of a rich Black tradition of challenging religious orthodoxy, but also from many others in his own community who had similarly come to question their core religious beliefs. While this journey eventually led him to discount the notion of God, he calls on all to ask their own questions, particularly those within the Black community who act on blind faith. While their own journey might not lead to his truth, he acknowledges, that is the only way they will ever emancipate themselves from the truths thrust on them by others and arrive at their most important truth - their own. 1.

You probably shop at Costco for great deals on buckets of salsa and crates of toilet paper. But earlier this fall, the discount giant began selling high-quality fine art — including works by Matisse and Warhol — in its online store. Next, from a wannabe rock star in School of Rock, to a Mexican wrestler in Nacho Libre, Jack Black is probably the closest thing in Hollywood to a superstar clown. He’s been described as ´´big, obnoxious, and funny in a slightly terrifying way.”Then, the Cold War was terrifying, but we have to admit: it made for some great entertainment, from Dr. No to Dr. Strangelove. And then there was the kid-friendly version: The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show. That all-American squirrel and his pal the moose first sauntered across TV screens in 1959, hotly pursued by Boris and Natasha — the Russian-accented spies with a knack for falling on their own grenades.And finally, Diana Krall’s interpretations of mid-century jazz standards have won her two Grammys and sold many millions of albums worldwide. For her new record — Glad Rag Doll — the singer and pianist mined the music of her childhood. Although she grew up in the 1970s, she was raised on her dad’s collection of 78 rpm records from 1920s and ´30s. [Broadcast Date: October 13, 2012] 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kurt Andersen.

Writer William Adler and jazz musician Bob Dorough on this archive edition of Fresh Air. Adler´s first book, Land of Opportunity: One Family´s Quest for the American Dream in the Age of Crack, tells the story of the Chambers brothers. The brothers moved to Detroit from Mississippi in the mid-´80s in search of economic freedom and found it by setting up the biggest drug business in the city. It was run like a Fortune 500 company with quality control, discounts, employee bonuses and a dress code. William Ferris calls the book a ´´chilling view o the urban drug scene and the black experience that should be read by every American.´´ Musician Bob Dorough was the musical director of the 1970s educational TV series, School House Rock and composer of the popular song ´´Three is a Magic Number.´´ (Original Broadcast Dates: May 3, 1995 and May 9, 1996) 1.

When a scandal cost him his high-paying job on Madison Avenue, ad man Jack Schiavone thought he could start over as a mattress discounter in beachfront Brooklyn. But his dream of a nice, quiet new life running a mattress store is about to get whacked. There’s a mob war brewing, and ´Mr. Mattress´ quickly finds himself in the middle of it.

I believe there are few events in my life which have not happened to many; it is true the incidents of it are numerous, and, did I consider myself an European, I might say my sufferings were great; but when I compare my lot with that of most of my countrymen, I regard myself as a particular favorite of heaven, and acknowledge the mercies of Providence in every occurrence of my life. - Olaudah Equiano Olaudah Equiano challenged the image of the unconscious African beast with such intellect, philosophical refinement, public presence, and elegant writing that standard British perceptions began to unravel. It is rational to assume that with his emergence as a respected world traveler, abolition of the slave trade was pushed forward by an incalculable number of years. Within his life, Equiano was to become the first black British politician, with a constituency of slaves and freemen enjoying representation for the first time in their cultural history. Equiano´s written account of his birth and early childhood has been met with some controversy, and in the absence of written records, the precise details may never be known. That he lived much of his life as a slave is irrefutable, and many historians discount the importance of his early childhood. Equiano claims to have been born in the Eboe province of modern-day Nigeria, more specifically in Epsaka of the Igbo culture. Doubts over this claim stem from two written documents in what is now South Carolina - one a birth record, the other a naval muster roll for an American ship. Various reasons are offered for their veracity or lack thereof, and several instances are cited under which Equiano might have found it necessary to alter his origins. Apart from these disagreements, everything else in the detailed autobiography is verifiable. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Colin Fluxman.
