Next week there is a new event in the Twin Ports that hopes to be the first of many: The Twin Ports Festival of History. Think "Homegrown" for history buffs. The event aims to provide those with an interest in history an opportunity to listen and discuss various history topics with authors and historians of local, regional, national, and international renown. The festival is scheduled from Wednesday, April 6 through Monday, April 11 at multiple venues throughout Duluth and Superior.

One of the festival's curators, David Woodward, the Director of Museum Studies at UMD's Department of History, Political Science, and International Relations (also the host of The North 1033's Caribbean Roots) joins us to talk about why the festival was created, and what attendees can expect.

Chris Harwood is The North 1033’s Production Director and (acting) Program Director, a morning/daytime host, and the host of Soul Village. He is also a musician, a music historian, an audio engineer, and an avid record collector.
