2018 Blooming Neighborhood Celebration Saturday, June 2, 10am–12pm Showers Plaza, Bloomington, IN

WTIU is joining the City of Bloomington’s HAND (Housing and Neighborhood Development) Department for the 2018 Blooming Neighborhood Celebration! This free event will take place Saturday, June 2, during the Farmers Market from 10am-12pm. Come celebrate Bloomington’s Bicentennial with its various neighborhoods and the 50th anniversary of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood with HAND and WTIU! Neighborhood displays, resources, photo booth, and more.

Spotlight WTIU Passport members now have an exclusive opportunity to watch a new series from the creators of Downton Abbey. Jamestown follows three courageous, dynamic women who leave their dark pasts in England and make the journey of a lifetime across the ocean to 17th century America.

Jamestown

The eight-episode series is a special presentation from PBS Passport and is not part of the broadcast schedule. When you watch Jamestown, you’ll see the New World with pioneers settling into new lives. But its executive producers set the show apart from other dramas of its kind by having the story driven primarily by women.

Jocelyn Woodbryg is a sophisticated courtier, Alice Kett is a hardworking farm girl, and Verity Bridges is a streetwise thief who gets bought out of prison. See how these women make the best of an unpredictable, wild new home when you start streaming today. Already using Passport? Sign in at pbs.org/passport/videos to watch Jamestown. Want to know more? Passport is available to WTIU members who make a yearly contribution of at least $60 or an ongoing monthly contribution of $5 or more. Call 1-800-987-9848 for more information.

This Month’s Highlights Jazz Ambassadors Friday, May 4 at 10pm

The Cold War and Civil Rights movement collide in this remarkable story of music, diplomacy and race. In 1955, the US State department decided to send America’s most popular jazz musicians, including Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie, Benny Goodman, and Dave Brubeck, as cultural ambassadors to tour the world. Their task was to combat the Soviet Union’s pervasive propaganda efforts that highlighted America’s racist segregation, but in this they faced a moral dilemma: how would they promote an image of a tolerant America when Jim Crow was still alive and well?

Little Women

Sunday, May 13 at 8pm Based on the classic novel by Louisa May Alcott, Little Women follows sisters Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy as they experience what it means to be a young woman. With their father away at war, the girls are raised by their mother. They undergo all the growing pains, from sibling rivalry and love to loss and marriage in this coming-of-age story.

Hedy Lamarr: American Masters Friday, May 18 at 9pm While Hedy Lamarr was known well as a Hollywood star and the “world’s most beautiful woman,” sexism stood in the way of her being recognized as a pioneering American inventor, whose work revolutionized modern communication. The program features previously unheard audio tapes of Lamarr detailing her accomplishments.

The Great American Read Tuesday, May 22 at 8pm Hosted by Meredith Viera, The Great American Read is an eight-part television series designed to spark a national conversation about reading and the books that have inspired, moved, and shaped us. The series will engage audiences with a list of 100 diverse books. Featuring testimonials from notable figures from the entertainment, sports, news and literary worlds, the series culminates in the first-ever national vote to choose “America’s BestLoved Book.”

Great Performances: The Opera House Friday, May 25 at 9pm

The Metropolitan Opera has a rich history, and the artists, architects, and politicians around it were among those who shaped the cultural life of New York City in the 1950s and ’60s. Since 1966, it has been housed in the esteemed Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. The Opera House details the creation of this home, including features from key individuals such as soprano Leontyne Price, General Manager Rudolf Bing, City Planner Robert Moses and the architect Wallace Harrison.

National Memorial Day Concert Sunday, May 27 at 8pm

Join the nation in honoring our men and women in uniform, their families at home, and all those who have given their lives in the name of our country. The award-winning memorial service features musical performances, documentary footage and dramatic readings, and is broadcast live from the West Lawn of the US capital before an audience of hundreds of thousands, millions more at home, and our troops stationed around the world.

Going to War

Monday, May 28 at 9pm What is it really like to go to war? Filled with terror, pain and grief, it also brings exhilaration, and a profound sense of purpose. In Going to War, renowned authors Karl Marlantes and Sebastian Junger help us make sense of this paradox and get to the heart of what it’s like to be a soldier at war. Veterans of various conflicts reveal some universal truths of combat with unflinching candor.

Chinese Exclusion Act: American Experience Tuesday, May 29 at 8pm

The story of the Chinese Exclusion Act is not well-known, but is a deeply American one. This unique piece of legislation signed in 1882 was one of the first stages on which the debate over immigration and American national identity was performed on. This documentary examines the economic, cultural, social, legal, racial and political dimensions of the law, in addition to its origins and impacts on American culture to this day.

wtiu.org/kids Giving Life Insurance to Charitable Causes Life insurance can be a tool with many purposes. When your children were young, you may have purchased a policy to provide them with financial protection in case something should happen to you or your spouse. Perhaps your circumstances have now changed. Many donors own whole life insurance policies they no longer need for family security. If so, consider one of the most satisfying uses for life insurance you no longer need—donating it to a cause dear to your heart, such as WTIU. When you choose to name a charitable organization as the policy owner and beneficiary, you may qualify for an income tax charitable deduction. Here is an example: John purchased a whole life insurance policy to provide his family financial security in the event of his passing. John’s children are now successful young adults who are doing quite well. John decides to name the IU Foundation—for the benefit of WTIU—as owner and beneficiary of his whole life insurance policy to create a named endowment to support news on WTIU after he passes. John receives a charitable income tax deduction for doing so that can be carried forward for 5 years. To complete your future gift, contact your insurance company and request their beneficiary designation form. It is entirely separate from your will and does not require a lawyer. Not only is it an easy way to give, but its flexible—you can review and adjust beneficiary designations and percentages anytime. That being said, it is always wise to consult a trusted advisor. For more information on making a beneficiary designation gift contact the IU Foundation Office of Gift Planning at call (800) 558-8311 with any questions about gift opportunities at WTIU.

Highlights A Bounty of Early Music! America’s grandest annual showcase of Renaissance and Baroque music is coming to Indiana—and we hope you can join us for the celebration! The Bloomington Early Music Festival (BLEMF) and the Historical Performance Institute (HPI) at IU’s Jacobs School of Music are teaming up with Early Music America (EMA) for more than a week of free events. The spotlight will fall on numerous renowned performers from around the world and close to home. WFIU is proud to serve as the Festival’s primary media partner. We’ll be offering live streams of selected events; exclusive in-studio conversations and performances, not only that week within Performance Today, but in the weeks to follow within Profiles and Harmonia; and, on Sunday, May 27, at 7pm, a live broadcast from IU’s Auer Hall featuring the Festival Orchestra led by concertmaster Ingrid Matthews.
