Germany's Black Holocaust

In the 1890s Blacks were tortured in German concentration camps in Southwest Africa (now called Namibia) when Adolph Hitler was only a child. Colonial German doctors conducted unspeakable medical experiments on these emaciated helpless Africans decades before such atrocities were ever visited upon the Jews. Thousands of Africans were massacred. Regrettably, historians neglected to properly register the slaughter--that is, to lift it from the footnote in history that it had been relegated to--until now. In an attempt to give the incidents their rightful recognition in the historical context of the Holocaust, Dr. Firpo W. Carr discusses his book, Germany's Black Holocaust: 1890-1945."

Beale Street
Author Preston Lauterbach discusses his research of Robert Church, who would become “the South’s first black millionaire,” was a biracial  “slave”  “owned” by his white father. Having survived a deadly race riot in 1866, Church constructed an empire of vice in the booming river town. He made a fortune with saloons, gambling, and?shockingly?white prostitution. But he also nurtured the militant journalism of Ida B. Wells and helped revolutionize American music through the work of composer W.C. Handy. In the face of Jim Crow, the Church fortune helped fashion the most powerful black political organization of the early twentieth century. Robert and his son, Bob Jr., bought and sold property, founded a bank, and created a park and auditorium for their people finer than the places whites had forbidden them to attend.

Healthy Brain- Healthy You!

Americans skip 500 million days of vacation time per year. Have we lost our minds?

Many people don’t stop working long hours, but science tells us we have a limited reservoir of attention that we can devote to a single thing for long periods of time without taking a break. And the longer the break, the better we’ll feel when we return to our daily routine. We tend to be more productive if we take deliberate breaks, not only during the day, but also from everyday life. Neuroscientist and memory expert Mark Underwood, will discuss the brain benefits of mini-vacations .

Bias, Stereotypes and Tolerance Join Dr. Brewer as she talks with Debby Irving, author of Being White, who describes her book like this: "By sharing my sometimes cringe-worthy struggle to understand racism and racial tensions, I offer a fresh perspective on bias, stereotypes, manners, and tolerance. As I unpack my own long-held beliefs about colorblindness, being a good person, and wanting to help people of color, I reveal how each of these well-intentioned mindsets actually perpetuated my ill-conceived ideas about race."

Why and When We Laugh Cognitive neuroscientist Scott Weems uncovers what’s happening in our heads when we laugh. While we typically think of humor in terms of jokes or comic timing,  Weems proposes a provocative new model. Humor arises from inner conflict in the brain, he argues, and is part of a larger desire to comprehend a complex world. Showing that the delight that comes with “getting” a punch line is closely related to the joy that accompanies the insight to solve a difficult problem, Weems explores why surprise is such an important element in humor, why computers are terrible at recognizing what’s funny, and why it takes so long for a tragedy to become acceptable comedic fodder.
