The history of child welfare in South Dakota, plus Snoopy and the Red Baron

Grace Martin Highley

On today's show …

There are still questions about the fate of a collection of controversial books that never made it to Rapid City classrooms. SDPB's CJ Keane has the story.

We meet the candidates for state house and senate for the 2022 election. Democrat Darla Drew is running for state representative in District 34.

We speak with the granddaughter of South Dakota Hall of fame Inductee Grace Martin Highly. Highley was the first director of South Dakota Child Welfare and held that position for more than 2 decades.

Plus, see artwork from Charles Schulz, the creator of the Peanuts up close in Aberdeen. This weekend is your last chance to see "Snoopy and the Red Baron" at the Dacotah Prairie Museum. We talk with Curator of Exhibits Marianne Marttila-Klipfel to learn more about Charles Schulz, his childhood in Minnesota, and how World War I set the stage for the iconic comic strip.
