Today on Radioactivity we hear from a Tampa native who has established a school for women in the country of Rwanda. Elizabeth Dearborn Hughes founded the Akila Institute in Rwanda, the first of its kind woman’s university in that African nation; its mission is to empower and educate women. Cecile and Julian two students at the school also join the show.

Later in the program Rob Lorei talks with a filmmaker Lynn Marvin Dingfelder, who has made a new film about President Kennedy’s trip to Tampa 50 years ago this month - just a few days before his assassination. The film, JFK in Tampa will premiere on Thursday in Tampa.
