This week we feature new music from Kamasi Washington. The saxophonist and composer has appeared on albums from Flying Lotus and Kendrick Lamar. His past compositions include a nearly three-hour long piece titled The Epic. His latest album is merely two discs worth of material, and its titled Heaven and Earth, and it explores the duality between looking outward and looking in.

They say April comes in like a lion and out like a lamb, but at the River Campus, we’re anything but sheep-like.

Madame Girardeau: Her Story

Visit Cape

Ensign Girardot's establishment of a trading post at Cape Rock put our river town on the map in the early 1700s. Volunteer Charlotte Slinkard at the Cape River Heritage Museum is traveling the country to research Cape Girardeau's earliest European history, and the story of Girardot's wife Therese quickly grabbed her attention. As the Cape River Heritage Museum prepares to open for the season this month, don't hesitate to stop by this former police and fire station to learn more about the early days of Cape Girardeau from the perspective of pioneering Therese Girardeau.
