For Labor Day we get you ready to go back to school with two previously aired segments. We hear from a journalism professor and two students about taking over a magazine. And we have a history lesson on ancient Rome.

Teacher Anne Lape says it’s normal for students to be anxious about the start of a new school year. But she says parents should be aware of the signs that a child is suffering from anxiety.

Western Michigan University Professor Sue Ellen Christian says her conversations with Encore Editor Marie Lee about students contributing to the magazine turned into a “takeover” of the May edition.

On WestSouthwest, we have a rebroadcast of an interview with Kalamazoo writer Robert Weir about a pilgrimage to key sites in the civil rights movement.

Robert Weir was “a little too young” to participate in the civil rights movement. Since he grew up in a rural, all-white area in Michigan, he didn’t know much about the movement until Martin Luther King Junior was assassinated. Weir has since written about civil rights, and recently joined a pilgrimage to key sites in three southern states. The Living Legacy Pilgrimage is a bus tour through Tennessee, Mississippi and Alabama.
