On today’s show, we hear about a local march against sexual assault. Plus, we hear a story of the power of literacy. And, members of both Arkansauce and National Park Radio perform inside the Firmin-Garner Performance Studio.

Michael Tilley, from Talk Business and Politics, is with us to discuss expected financial reports from J. B. Hunt and new support for a Fort Smith school millage request.

The ME TOO March on Fayetteville will begin at 1 p.m. tomorrow at the Fayetteville Town Center plaza. The event will feature guest speakers, a proclamation from Mayor Lioneld Jordan, and a one-mile march. In case of inclement weather, a rain date will be posted to the event's Facebook page.
