    History Detectives [#211] Charlie Parker Saxophone/Prison Plaque/Koranic School Book * Charlie Parker Saxophone - A woman in Oakland, California, owns a beautiful old alto saxophone that belonged to her father and according to family legend was once owned by the legendary jazz musician Charlie "Bird" Parker. Her late father, a white musician, told her that when they lived in Portland, Oregon, Charlie Parker came to a practice session without his horn. The story goes that when her father chided Parker for selling his instrument, Bird said, "If you want the horn so much, here's the pawn ticket." But is the story true? Did these two musicians ever meet? Would Charlie Parker abandon his horn? HD investigates an original American art form and the life of a troubled musical genius.
    * Prison Plaque - In the heart of Philadelphia stands the abandoned Eastern State Penitentiary building. Founded by Quakers in 1829, this castle-like structure set new standards for prisons across the country with its progressive ideas for rehabilitation. Recently, a group in charge of preserving this historic structure found a strange plaque discarded in a pile of rubbish. Dusting it off, they found an intriguing inscription: "In the everlasting memory of the inmates of Eastern State Penitentiary who served in World War I." Even more intriguing is that fact that they are listed not by name, but by their prison numbers. From what they know, convicted felons were prohibited from enlisting or being drafted to fight in the war. Is this an example of the prison's progressive take on prisoner reform? Or is this a sign of desperate recruiting measures for the "war to end all wars," when even prisoners are being sent into battle? Tukufu Zuberi and Wes Cowan are on the case to get to the bottom of this mystery.
    * Koranic School Book - A viewer in Mulvane, Kansas, owns a 200-year-old schoolbook with a startling secret. The book belonged to a young woman from Kentucky in 1800, but contains two translated passages of the Koran. What are they doing there? And how did this frontier farmer learn about Islam? Taking on this tough challenge, the detectives reach some startling conclusions about U.S. contact with the Muslim world and the story of Islam in America.

    Miller Center Forums [#1606] E. J. Dionne, Jr. - America Divided In his new book, Our Divided Political Heart, E. J. Dionne, Jr. offers an incisive analysis of how hyper-individualism is poisoning the nation's political atmosphere. He argues that Americans can't agree on who we are because we can't agree on who we've been or what it is philosophically and spiritually that makes us Americans. Dionne takes on the Tea Party's distortions of American history and shows that the true American tradition points not to radical individualism but to a balance between our love of individualism and our devotion to community. Dionne is a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution and a columnist for the Washington Post. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG
