WXDU News, Sports, and Information Tonight (5/3) 6:00-8:00

Check out the latest in science news with the Endless Frontier first at 6:00 tonight.

Then join WXDU News at 6:30 for an episode of With Good Reason titled "Mr. Turner and the Industrial Revolution." This program discusses J.M.W. Turner, one of the first painters to incorporate images of the Industrial Revolution into his work. Later in the show, we'll learn about the impact of the abolitionist movement on women's suffrage.

WXDU Sports is up next at 7:00. On tonight's show, Martin Kang has a round up of Duke sports, including the school's NFL draft picks, the new players who will be joining the men's basketball squad and the latest on men's and women's lacrosse and women's soccer. Plus, he'll share information about Duke's women's softball team, set to join the athletic roster in two years, and have the results from G.O.U.G.E. Wrestling's Cinco de Mayhem event yesterday at Motorco. Later in the show, tune in for a piece from Radio Cafe about Bud Fowler, an early African American Baseball player who integrated the sport decades before the Dodgers signed Jackie Robinson. And nearly two weeks after this year's Boston Marathon, we'll share several reports about running: Homelands Productions profiles the winner of the women's 2009 Boston Marathon, World Vision Report tells the story of Iten, the running capital of the world, and Western Folklife Center Media has a look at the Native American symbolism of running and a relay race that commemorates the Pueblo revolt against the Spanish.
