Banished by Marco Williams( Visual )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[R]ecounts the forgotten history of racial cleansing in America, when thousands of African Americans were driven from their homes and communities by violent racist mobs in the late 19th and early 20th centuries ... The film places these events in the context of present day race relations, by following three concrete cases of towns that remain all-white to this day (Forsyth County, Georgia; Pierce City, Missouri; & Harrison, Arkansas). [The film] raises the larger question -- will the United States ever make meaningful reparations for the human rights abuses suffered, then and now, against its African American citizens? Can reconciliation between the races be possible without them?"--Container

10 days that unexpectedly changed America( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Last in a three-part series in which acclaimed documentary filmmakers present ten pivotal moments in American history and their often unforeseen repercussions. This segment of three documentary films records events that changed the way Americans saw themselves. Albert Einstein's letter to Franklin D. Roosevelt on July 16, 1939, urged the development of the atomic bomb through the Manhattan Project. Elvis Presley's appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show on Sept. 9, 1956, signified a whole new culture that involved the emergence of television, teenage independence, sexuality, race relations, and a new form of music. Freedom Summer of 1964 focused national attention on Mississippi when three civil rights workers (two white and one black) were murdered by the Ku Klux Klan on June 21, 1964, leading eventually to the passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act
Unfinished country( Visual )

"Through unfettered access to powerbrokers and ordinary citizens, this Wide Angle report covers Haiti's ongoing struggle to craft a truly representative government from a volatile failed state. Butteur Metayer and Guy Philippe -- strongmen of the National Front for the Reconstruction of Haiti Party and former rebels who drove Jean-Bertrand Aristide from power in 2004 -- and three other Haitians express their points of view. 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 15 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
