Abstract:

From Thomas Paine's "The Rights of Man," and Henry David Thoreau's "On the Duty of Civil Disobedience," to the practice of slavery and the treatment of Native Americans, the idea of human rights in North America has not always matched the deeds. This episode takes a look at "Freedom of My Mind," a documentary on Mississippi's Freedom Summer. Also included are reports on the impact of Canada's hydroelectric project at James Bay on the indigenous people there; the U.S. Army's School of the Americas where some of the soldiers trained there have become some of the worst dictators in Latin America; Andrew Tyndall's commentary on the U.S. media coverage of Native Americans; and an interview with director Haile Gerima about his film on slavery in America, "Sankofa," are also included.
