My broadcast on national radio

The gravestone of Robert Prager, a German who was lynched by a mob in Collinsville, Illinois in 1918.

I was honored to be one of those who spoke during an eight-minute segment on the anti-German hysteria of World War I broadcast Friday, April 7, on NPR. In it, I discussed the names of streets with German streets that were Anglicized. The in-depth piece showed the typical excellent of NPR and included stories from historians throughout the country. To listen to the part where I’m quoted, go to the third link that says “listen.” You may also want to the other two links, too.
