Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum Movie Event -- I Am Madam President

In this exciting one-hour adventure, Xavier’s sister Yadina Riddle goes on a journey into the past to meet some of the great female trailblazers in history. From those heroes, including Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Amelia Earhart, and Sally Ride, Yadina learns that just because something’s never been done before, it doesn’t mean you can’t do it! Even if that something is becoming the first female President of the United States!

Premieres March 16 on LPB at 8AM & 3:30 PM and on LPBKIDS at 6 PM!

Take LPB's 2020 Survey by March 20th for a chance to win a 55" Smart TV!

Louisiana Public Broadcasting, Louisiana’s statewide public television network, wants to learn more about the public’s viewing habits. At the start of a new decade in a rapidly changing media landscape, LPB is launching its 2020 Viewer Survey to gather public input and information about how viewers watch LPB content, what LPB programs are valued most, and how LPB can better serve the citizens of Louisiana. Today, media content is available on a wide array of devices and platforms, and LPB wants to make sure it creates and presents content that enhances the lives of all Louisianans and that viewers can watch public television programs when they want and where they are. The short survey only takes a few minutes to fill out and respondents who complete the survey by Friday, March 20 will be entered to win a 55-inch Smart TV. THANK YOU!
