Gordon Parks : segregation story by Gordon Parks( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In September 1956, Life magazine published a photo-essay by Gordon Parks entitled "The Restraints: Open and Hidden," which documented the everyday activities and rituals of one extended African American family living in the rural South under Jim Crow segregation. One of the most powerful photographs depicts Joanne Thornton Wilson and her niece, Shirley Anne Kirksey, standing in front of a theater in Mobile, Alabama, an image which became a forceful "weapon of choice," as Parks would say, in the struggle against racism and segregation. While 26 photographs were eventually published in Life and some were exhibited in his lifetime, the bulk of Parks' assignment was thought to be lost. In 2011, five years after Parks' death, The Gordon Parks Foundation discovered more than 70 color transparencies at the bottom of an old storage bin marked "Segregation Series" that are now published for the first time in Segregation Story

Country of my skull : guilt, sorrow, and the limits of forgiveness in the new South Africa by Antjie Krog( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than two years Antjie Krog worked in acute engagement with the many voices that arose in and around South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission. From the legislative genesis of the Commission, through the testimonies of victims of abuse and violence, and the activities of apartheid's operatives, the appearance of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, former President PW Botha's courthouse press conference, the Commission's meeting with the media in Robben Island early in 1998 - this award-winning poet leads us on an extraordinary odyssey. "Country of my skull" captures the complexity of the Truth Commission's work in a uniquely personal narrative which is harrowing, illuminating and provocative. Before the Commission. They never wept, the men of my race. None more parted than us. First hearings. Bereaved and dumb, the high southern air succumbs. The narrative of betrayal has to be reinvented every time. The sound of the second narrative. The wet bag and other phantoms. Two women: let us hear it in another language. Guilt is on the move with all her mantles. Politics. The political page curls over itself. Reconciliation: the leser of two evils. Amnesty: in transit with the ghosts. The political tongue at anchor. Reactions. Blood rains in every latitude. Letters on the acoustics of scars. It gets to all of us - from Tutu to Mamasela. Truth is a women. Then burst the mighty heart. Unwinding. The shepherd and the landscape of my bones. A tragedy of errors. Mother faces the nation. Beloved country of grief and grace

Global Institutions and Human Rights( Visual )

4 editions published between 1996 and 2002 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After World War II, the United Nations, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund were established to 'ensure peace and prosperity' throughout the world in the face of the threat of communism. With the fall of the Soviet Union, critics of these organizations argue that they are ill-equipped to deal with human rights issues and the 'new world order.' This classic program examines the need for these organizations to adapt to changing political, economic, and social conditions in the world, and to begin dealing with complex, unforeseen issues such as ethnic conflict, internal disorder, and the breakdown of state institutions. It focuses on the impact of World Bank economic policies imposed on developing countries in the name of global economic reform, suggesting that the interests of foreign investors might be at odds with those of the indigenous populations. Featured here are Lawrence Eagleburger, former Secretary of State; authors David Rieff (Slaughterhouse) and Ian Williams (The UN for Beginners); Mike Jendrecejzyk of Human Rights Watch; Patricia Armstrong, Lawyer's Committee for Human Rights; Shahid Javed Burki, a professional economist who served at the World Bank for 25 years, Lawrence Summers, former Secretary of the U.S. Treasury and a member of Barack Obama's Transition Economic Advisory Board; and, lastly, an exclusive interview with Alvaro De Soto, former Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations

Freedom of speech and the right to a free media are the issues in this historic program. Our first story deals with the lack of media independence in post-communist Hungary. Interviews are conducted with government and media leaders, including Istvan Csurka, vice president of Prime Minister Jozsef Antall's political party, Csaba Gombar, President of Hungarian Radio, and Izabella Kiraly, a member of the Democratic Forum Party. We see Hungarian President Arpad Goncz being booed off the stage when he refuses to fire the heads of radio and television. We learn that Elemer Hankiss, the President of Hungarian TV, resigns as he speaks of the situation, and we meet Akos Mester one of Hungary's 129 fired radio journalists. In the next story we learn of the terrible shootings of journalists worldwide. William A. Orme, Jr., Executive Director of the Committee to Protect Journalists (1992-1998), explains why these journalists are singled out for shootings and harassment. Kalala Mbenga Kalao, a journalist from Zaire, and Kim Brice and Leonid Zagalasky, both members of the Committee to Protect Journalists, share their knowledge of abuse to journalists in countries around the world. The last story deals with whether writers should be activists. Lawrence Weschler of The New Yorker and Breyten Breytenbach, a South African author who was once jailed for his activism, share their opinions. Marina Komarecki, the US Correspondent for Radio B92, explains what the station is all about, and Sonja Licht, a member of Open Society Fund in Yugoslavia, tells her story

Chechnya Russia's human rights nightmare( Visual )

4 editions published between 1996 and 2004 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For over one hundred years, people of Chechnya have been fighting for self determination from the Russian State. In 1944, Stalin destroyed Chechnya and expelled its residents to central Russia. In 1991, a reborn Chechnya proclaimed its independence from Russia, but President Yeltsin viewed this as a threat to Russian sovereignty, and in spite of self-proclaimed peace plans, he ordered the military to intervene. A Chechnyan militia of farmers and craftsman began a campaign of resistance and sabotage in an effort to combat the Russian military. This program profiles the six-year war in Chechnya, with footage documenting war crimes, genocide, and other human rights violations. A video diary from Thomas Goltz documents the Russian Army's annihilation of the Chechnyan town of Samashki where thousands of civilians perished at the hands of 'drunken, doped-up soldiers.' The program also includes a profile of human rights hero, Fred Cuny, who mysteriously disappeared in Chechnya while attempting to come to the aid of the Chechnyan people

This classic program first offers a profile of Father Ricardo Rezende and his work defending peasants in the Brazilian Amazon. To many Rezende is an unsung hero defending the poor though his efforts have also angered many cattle ranchers, which has led to several attempts against his life. Next, the death penalty is an-going controversy in the United States; in some states it is abolished, while in others it is strongly supported; here we hear from a victim's family apposed to the death penalty, saying it doesn't properly measure the anguish of losing a loved one. Next, since 1983 the Sri Lankan Civil War has been ongoing intermittently between the government and a militant organization called the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), who are fighting for the creation of an independent state, which they want named Tamil Eelam. Over 68,000 people have been killed since the conflict began. This segment takes a look behind a number of the assassinations and features author William McGowan (Only Man is Vile). Next, a view of Cambodia as it moves toward democracy features Elizabeth Farnsworth (The NewsHour) and Sidney Jones (Asia Watch). Next, we learn of experimental documentaries in the UK produced by the Black Audio Film Collective from filmmaker John Ahomfrah and Wilfred Little, Malcolm X's brother.
