Smart Talk Road Trip to State Museum and 9/11 exhibit

  • Scott LaMar

Smart Talk remembers the 9/11 terrorist attacks 20 years later with a Road Trip to the State Museum of Pennsylvania Thursday.

Witness to History is a new exhibit at the State Museum that includes the notes taken on Sept. 11, 2001, by former Pennsylvania State Police Commissioner, Col. Paul Evanko, when he joined former Gov. Tom Ridge at the United Flight 93 crash site in Somerset County.

Col. Evanko appears on Thursday’s Smart Talk to describe his experiences on that fateful day. He’ll be joined by State Archivist David Carmichael.

Also, on the program is WITF’s Multimedia News Director Tim Lambert, who along with NPR’s Scott Detrow, produced a widely acclaimed retrospective radio documentary. Tim has a unique perspective in that Flight 93 crashed on land he and his family owned.

We’ll also be joined by Gettysburg College Professor of History Michael Birkner, Ph.D., discussing how the nation became so divided after uniting on 9/11.
