Hello Beautiful!

From Emancipation to Exploitation?

We talk with history teacher James Percoco. His book Summers With Lincoln chronicles his journey across the nation visiting statues of Abraham Lincoln. He says seven of those sculptures have the richest and deepest impact on Lincoln's legacy.

Next, two film professors debate the merits of the famed 1972 film Super Fly. Is it a work of popular art or a form of black exploitation? The film will be screened and discussed in the 8th round of Columbia College's Cinema SmackDown on February 14.
