Prophets and Poets : Southern Literature, 1941-1962( Visual )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A wave of bold American writing from both white and black authors gave expression to Southern life during World War II and the years that followed. This program tells the story of that literary development up to the era of the Civil Rights movement. It presents the work of Eudora Welty, Richard Wright, Robert Penn Warren, Ralph Ellison, Lillian Smith, Flannery O'Connor, and others - as well as a revealing 1997 interview with Welty herself. An inventive dramatization of the opening of Ellison's Invisible Man evokes the sense of surreal alienation conveyed in that novel. In addition, viewers will find excerpts from the rarely seen 1951 film adaptation of Wright's Native Son, starring Wright himself, as well as readings from O'Connor's Wise Blood, "Everything That Rises Must Converge," and "A Good Man Is Hard to Find."

As America began to confront the injustices of Jim Crow, a new generation of literary voices rose up from below the Mason-Dixon Line - voices that spoke not just to the soul of the South but to the nation's. This program examines Southern American literature from the early 1960s to today's literary landscape. It highlights the work of Walker Percy, Alice Walker, William Styron, Ernest Gaines, Reynolds Price, Alex Haley, Margaret Walker, Lee Smith, Larry Brown, Clyde Edgerton, Pat Conroy, and others. Interviews with many of these authors, including Alice Walker and William Styron, are also featured. Dramatized readings help to illuminate passages from Percy's The Moviegoer, Styron's The Confessions of Nat Turner, and Lee Smith's Fair and Tender Ladies
Long shadows : the legacy of the American Civil War( Visual )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ruined cities, scorched countryside, over 600,000 deaths - these were the Civil War's direct results. But its long-term effects were no less cataclysmic and are still at work in American society. From North to South, from civil rights to foreign policy, from individual to collective memory, this classic program by award-winning filmmaker Ross Spears explores the cultural, political, and economic echoes of the War Between the States. Reflections come from a wide range of distinguished guests, including former President Jimmy Carter, poet and novelist Robert Penn Warren, scholars Robert Coles and John Hope Franklin, and author Studs Terkel. Civil rights activists, West Point graduates, Vietnam War veterans, battlefield tour guides, relic collectors, and blues musicians also add commentary to this evocative study
