    • RESOURCE: Sphinx, "a social justice organization dedicated to transforming lives through the power of diversity in the arts. Based in Detroit, Michigan, but with nationwide reach, Sphinx envisions a day where the classical music field looks like our communities: where every young person has the opportunity to express themselves and learn classical music; where audiences reflect the people we see on our streets; and where leadership—on stage and off— includes all deserving voices."

In light of President's Day on Monday, RadioACTive spoke with author Ron Gruner about his new book We The Presidents - How American Presidents Shaped the Last Century. As a founder and CEO of three tech companies over the course of his business career, Gruner wanted to focus not on their partisan politics but instead on economic triumphs, policy accomplishments and each President’s lasting impact on the American landscape over the Century.

    • a 200-page economics history from Adam Smith to Modern Monetary Theory

    • a 100-page American history from the French-Indian Wars to the January 6 Insurrection
