In 1925, Mrs. Mary Carson Breckinridge led a team of spirited women to Leslie County, Kentucky and established a demonstration of providing unprecedented healthcare to rural Appalachia. Together, they improved the maternal and infant mortality rates, losing just two maternal patients over a span of 12 years.

It’s time for the season finale as the three remaining cooks go head-to-head to win. They’ll have some surprise helpers for their final chance to wow the judges with a very special dinner.

Gumbo is a dish that’s held in high esteem in the American South. And that’s not just because it tastes so good. Gumbo not only fills our bellies; it also tells us something about who we are as Southerners.

In this week's commentary, Salvation South editor Chuck Reece explains why gumbo is actually the best metaphor for Southern culture.

While Americans face challenges unlike any other time in our history, GPB and StoryCorps invite you to take part in One Small Step, a nationwide initiative to help bridge political divides and strengthen communities, one conversation at a time.

You'll meet someone new - a fellow resident with different views from you, who you might never talk to otherwise - for a simple, personal, 50-minute conversation. With participant permission, these conversations will be preserved for future generations at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
