There was Jackie Robinson, the baseball player. And then there was Jackie Robinson, symbol of the color barrier and an icon of the civil rights movement. There is Sharon Robinson, who was only 6 years old when her father retired from baseball. And then there is Sharon Robinson, keeper of the flame. Being the child of a legend is a full-time job for Sharon Robinson. Literally. She has worked for Major League Baseball since 1997 as director of educational programming. As such, she travels the country teaching schoolchildren the values her father lived.

Among the many enticing concerts vying for your attention this weekend, here are two to consider. Tomorrow, the Santa Fe Guitar Quartet will bring its collective talents to Baltimore in a program that ranges from J. S. Bach and Bela Bartok to Isaac Albeniz and Astor Piazzolla. Named for the city in Argentina, the ensemble began making a name for itself in 1989 by combining classical repertoire with both classical and folk music of Latin America. There has been a particular emphasis on the tango-based works by the late Piazzolla, whose vibrant scores have helped bring the dance form back to the fore.

If she were just a faceless statistic, Sharon Robinson might seem to some in Columbia a disconcerting stereotype: a black welfare mother, bringing Baltimore's problems to the suburbs. A persistent myth in Columbia is that older neighborhoods declined only after a stream of Baltimore's subsidized and public-housing tenants came to town. There was indeed an influx of Baltimore tenants under the federal Section 8 rent-subsidy program, but much of it was in the past five years - after the first disparaging whispers about an "Inner Columbia."

First lady Laura Bush recently scheduled seven minutes - seven minutes! - to sit for an interview about reading and Saturday's National Book Festival, an annual event she holds in Washington with the Library of Congress. At first, it seemed an impossible task, particularly when the first lady, from public appearances, appears to have a lot to say, but tends to say it in a rather serene, leisurely way. But not to worry. The former librarian is as efficient in interviews as she is diligent about reading.
