It has been more than fifteen years since Paul Simon made his initial trip to South Africa and met Joseph Shabalala and the other members of Ladysmith Black Mambazo in a recording studio in Johannesburg. Simon incorporated the traditional sounds of black South Africa into the Graceland album, a project regarded by many as seminal to today's explosive interest in World Music. Ladysmith Black Mambazo has come to represent the traditional culture of South Africa. Considered South Africa's cultural emissaries at home and around the world, Black Mambazo accompanied the future President Nelson Mandela, and then-South African President F.W. de Klerk, to the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in Oslo, Norway.

Founded in 1962 as Dance Incorporated Chicago, the company was the first jazz dance troupe to tour the former Soviet Union in 1974. This focus on jazz dance led to a new name - Gus Giordano Jazz Dance Chicago - and its current mission to develop and preserve the indigenous American art form of jazz dance, thereby creating an awareness of jazz dance as a true artistic expression of American life. More than 40 years since its inception, Gus Giordano Jazz Dance Chicago continues to bring the excitement of American jazz dancing to audiences in countries around the world.

Madame Marie Curie (née Maria Sklodowska) - changed our world through her discovery of radium and radioactivity. Through her own passion and perseverance, Marie Curie opened the doors of science to women world-wide. Manya not only celebrates the scientist, but also illuminates the human side of Marie Curie, a woman who felt more daunted by the chemistry of the kitchen than of the laboratory. Whether looking at Marie within her historical context or through the lens of a new millennium, this is a life that challenges our assumptions about what one person can achieve and the responsibilities of science.
