Blacks and Jews( Visual )

11 editions published between 1987 and 2015 in English and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the civil rights movement, African Americans and Jews fought together for equal rights. But differences in economic status eventually led to divisive positions on issues such as affirmative action in education, Louis Farrakhan's philosophies, and even a perceived Jewish influence in Hollywood. In this program, scholars and critics probe the history and psychology of the social marginalization shared by blacks and Jews. Key conflicts, such as New York's Crown Heights riots and the blockbusting in Chicago that pitted Jewish homeowners against black home buyers, are examined from the perspectives of activists on both sides. With Letty Cottin Pogrebin, Cornel West, and others

2 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1949, America's first listener-supported community radio station, KPFA, began broadcasting from Berkeley, Calif. The station quickly became a living testament to free speech and cultural diversity -- a vital community of the air that often found itself embroiled in conflict. This film reviews KPFA's passionate 50-year history, including its founding by pacifists and poets, through alternative news coverage of the McCarthy hearings, peace issues, race relations, nuclear disarmanent, nuclear power, student protests, the Black Panther Movement, and the Vietnam War, to the present day challenges that confront this ongoing experiment in democratic media

Magda Escobar runs Plugged In, a computer training center in a low income community just a few miles from the epicenter of high-tech wealth. Raj Jayadev is a temporary worker who confronts the hype of Silicon Valley by revealing the reality of an unseen and unacknowledged army of immigrant workers. Throughout the film, high tech CEO's and moguls comment on Magda and Raj's stories with revealing insights on time, technology, greed, and globalization. Part "Modern Times," part "Bladerunner," this film takes a critical look at the social impact of the new millenium's high technology

Ezekiel's wheels : a poem and reading( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Poet Shirley Kaufman gives a tour-de-force reading of her new work ... The poem, a contemplation of loss, longing, and the nature of true seeing, was inspired by her experience of losing her sight. Emerging from eye surgery, Kaufman had visions like those of the exiled Biblical prophet Ezekiel. Apocalyptic fires in the sky, wheels within wheels, and a valley of bones are encountered on a journey that leads from destruction towards revelation."
