From the WAMU website:

A Planned Community Turns 40: Columbia, MD
It was a radical social experiment in the era of Jim Crow laws: to create a
planned community in rural Maryland that would welcome people of any race, class
or religion. Forty years later, the town of Columbia is now home to 100,000
people. We look at what's worked, what hasn't, and what's next for one of
America's most idealistic suburbs.

Ken Ulman, Howard County Executive
