WORT’s news reporter Helena White has just spent the summer traveling around Southern Wisconsin and Northern Illinois learning more about Black Hawk and the Black Hawk War. Over the summer she retraced the route of the war, visiting historic sites along the route and conducting interviews with Native historians. The story has been made into a multi-part audio series entitled “The War on Black Hawk.” Helena White joins Brian Standing to talk more about the project. The audio series will air at 11 am during Global Revolutions and between 6 pm and 7 pm on WORT Local News every Monday starting Monday, Oct 17th for 11 weeks. Final episode will be Monday, Dec 26th. The website is wortfm.org/blackhawk There you can see a map of the Black Hawk trail, photos of the places and people featured and hear the entire radio series.
