Banished by Marco Williams( Visual )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 478 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

No job for a woman : the women who fought to report WWII( Visual )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Before World War II, war reporting was considered to be absolutely no job for a woman. But when the United States entered the war, American women reporters did not want to miss covering the biggest story of the century so they fought for and won access. But there was a catch: women reporters would be banned from the frontlines, prevented from covering front page stories about generals and battlefield maneuvers, and assigned woman's angle stories about nurses and female military personnel. Several women reporters refused to abide by these journalistic conventions and military restrictions and, instead, brought home a new kind of war story; one that was more intimate yet more revealing. They reached beyond the battlefield and deep into human lives to tell a new story of war."--Container
