Outreach for Training for Firefighters and Safety Educators - $25.00

Every year thousands of Americans risk personal injury, property damage and loss of life due to fire and other natural disasters. Firefighters and safety educators serve as vital resources to their communities in helping avoid these risks.

The two series, Facts on Fire! and Situation:Disaster!, produced by Louisiana Public Broadcasting, were designed to provide valuable information to targeted and general audiences on how to protect themselves, their families and their property from fire and seven other natural disasters.

The two programs, Using the Facts on Fire! Series for Outreach and Using the Situation:Disaster! Series for Outreach, demonstrate how firefighters and safety educators can most effectively incorporate segments from the two series into a community presentation.

Hosted by Sonny Cudd, a firefighter with the LSU Fire and Emergency Training Institute and a co-host of Facts on Fire!, these two "how-to" programs illustrate the versatility and user-friendly design of the two series and help firefighters better plan for their next community outreach event.

Blues is hugely popular all over the world; a diverse and multi-leveled art form that can express every human emotion through a kind of folk-art existential poetry that comes from deep within the human spirit. Learn how the blues came from West African rhythms, was transformed by the pain of slavery, and moved North after the Civil War. Much that was the Blues stayed in the Deep South, maturing and developing along with other forms of music. Blues has influenced every genre of music; jazz, rock & roll, gospel, even classical!

Rosedown: A Link to the Past - $25.00

LPB explores the history of West Feliciana's Rosedown Plantation.

The two-story home and its gardens were built by Daniel Turnbull and Martha Hillard Barrow Turnbull to resemble the beautiful gardens of France, England and Italy that they saw on their honeymoon in 1828. Completed in 1835, Rosedown Plantation's estate covered 3,500 acres and would eventually include 12-huge columns and two small ones, as well as three porches. The biggest attraction has always been the glorious gardens that Martha Turnbull continued expanded for the remainder of her life.

Rosedown went into decline until Catherine Fondren Underwood purchased the property in 1956 and restored it to its original splendor. Mrs. Underwood and her husband maintained the plantation until their deaths. Their son kept it for more than a decade before selling it.

As Rosedown appeared to be spiraling downward again, the State of Louisiana purchased the plantation. It is now an historic site, providing invaluable insights into the history of life on a southern plantation.

SIGNPOST TO FREEDOM: The 1953 Baton Rouge Bus Boycott - $25.00

A one hour documentary that recounts the circumstances and events that led to the nation's first large-scale boycott protesting segregation and then examines its impact on the evolution of grassroots civil rights activism across the country during the early years of America's Civil Rights Movement. Regardless of whether the Baton Rouge bus boycott is viewed as a success or failure, the boycott's impact on the larger civil rights movement is indisputable. Not only did the boycott provide proof that African Americans could take a brave, unified, and peaceful stand against segregation, it also brought to light a specific, yet fundamental inequity suffered by most black Southerners, paying the same bus fare as whites, but having to stand up over empty seats, simply because they were black. Music by Grammy-winning artist Chris Thomas King.
