    Special presentation of “The 1927 Project”, a presentation about an early 20th-century lynching in Little Rock, Arkansas. In 2013, the project’s creator, writer/historian Stephanie Harp traveled to Arkansas to join descendants and relatives of those connected to the lynching to present historical and personal perspectives on what happened. “The 1927 Project” recreates that community discussion. “The public discussion in Little Rock was the first to include family members of so many major figures in the 1927 events,” Harp said. “The wounds from this lynching are still very raw in Little Rock. We all gain a better understanding of today’s news by looking at its roots in the past.” Harp holds a master’s degree in U.S. history from the University of Maine where the lynching was her research topic, and a bachelor’s degree in English from Randolph-Macon College, Ashland, Virginia. She has published journalism, creative nonfiction and book reviews, and has presented her research and writing in Maine, North Carolina and Arkansas.

    Stephanie Harp and Orono High School students Emily Noyes, Tom Boss, Erin Luthin, Elsa Jolliffe Saunders, and Jessie Walker join us in the studio for the presentation and discussion.

    These days we often think that the titans of tech have some sort of unfailing insight into the future. We won’t be able to tell if that is true of today’s tech heroes for years, or maybe even decades, into the future, but a look at some of the past tech prognosticators suggest that maybe they put their pants on one leg at a time like the rest of us. Here are a few examples.
