The town was forever altered, and the nation woke up the the horror of a modern-day lynching. The filmmakers set out to document the aftermath of the murder by following the trials of the local men charged with the crime.

An interview between Bill Moyers and James Dobbins, former U.S. Special Envoy to Haiti, concludes the program."--Container
I sit where I want the legacy of Brown v. Board of Education ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What does a high school lunchroom tell us about the state of race relations in America? A commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the landmark supreme court decision, Brown v. Board of Education. The documentary takes place in Buffalo, NY at the Buffalo Academy for Visual and Performing Arts. In many ways this school is the "Brown" ideal-- integrated, with a diverse mix of students; but, while they may attend classes together, the students segregate themselves. The film focuses on one brave group of teens who decide to take on the most visible, tangible representation of the racial divide-- their segregated lunchroom. In a challenging and often uncomfortable experiment, the students set out to discover what their lunchroom says about them and their community, and what they can do about it

Slæbt til døde ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2003 in Danish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
I 1988 vågnede indbyggerne i Jasper i Texas en morgen til nyheden om, at den sorte James Byrd Jr. var blevet banket, lænket til en pick-up og slæbt efter bilen til hans krop faldt fra hinanden. Tre hvide mænd, alle med tætte forbindelser til den nazistiske og racistiske bevægelse Aryan Nation, blev arresteret for mordet. Mordet pustede liv i debatten om racisme i det amerikanske samfund, og Jaspers indbyggere blev konfronteret med racismen både i den småborgerlige form, men også den yderligtgående, som praktiseres af grupper som Ku-Klux-Klan og De Sorte Pantere
