The Promised Land brings us the stories of people who are changing their communities with innovative thinking and tireless effort. This episode features Nat Turner, who has transformed an old store in New Orlean’s Lower Ninth Ward into Blair Grocery, a nontraditional school and an
urban farm run by youth who’ve dropped out of mainstream education.
In the fall of 1960, the writer John Steinbeck drove across the country
with his poodle, Charley, and a question: "What are Americans like
today?" Half a century later, "Travels with Mike" retraces Steinbeck’s
steps to hear America’s story today and reflect on its history.
