Thoth: Before high rents sent him to New York to live with his mother and perform at Central Park's Angel Tunnel, Thoth was a fixture at BART stations in San Francisco. Thoth's lovely countertenor, adept violin, and haunting, otherworldly songs are employed in service to his fantasy kingdom. Created in his youth, "the Festad" serves as the basis for his opera, but began as a refuge from the racism encountered by those of mixed-race in the 1960s. From son of New York intellectuals to androgynous street performer, Thoth has trod a twisty path, illustrated by this film

Margaret Sanger ( visu )
2 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and held by 30 libraries worldwide
"Birth control advocate, self-styled libertarian, and ardent proponent of women's rights--Margaret Sanger was all of these, as this balanced, probing documentary attests. Using rare archival footage, diary excerpts, and commentary from historians, critics, and relatives, the program traces Sanger's extraordinary life and exhaustive work in the promotion and legalization of contraception. The documentary examines Sanger's legal battles, her work to distribute scientific birth control information, and her best-known achievement: the establishment of Planned Parenthood. Grandson Alexander Sanger--himself a birth control activist--offers insight into her Bohemian life as well as the fierce opposition she faced from conservative religious and social groups. Margaret Sanger is seen in both triumph and failure. At the start of her career, she opened the first birth control clinic in the United States. She finished her work a half-century later after launching the research that led to the birth control pill. But her darker side--her use of the racist and elitist arguments of eugenics--haunts her memory to this day."--Container
