Episode #305

KQED 9: Thu, Feb 7, 2013 -- 11:29 PM

A special presentation featuring 3 profiles of World War II vets.
Leading the way is former US Army Force Captain Les Williams. At the height of WWII, a group of highly motivated African American pilots from the original 99th Fighter group flew some of the most challenging and daunting missions of the European Theater. They were known as the Tuskegee Airmen, and their story is more than just about individual heroism but rather about men, who were able to prevail over discrimination and American prejudice and the Nazi war machine. Les Williams was one of those young pilots that went through the training in Tuskegee, Alabama.
Pilot Barbara London served on the home front as one of the original WASPs. Among the very first group of women to fly military aircraft, London ferried everything from fighters to bombers coast to coast as the allies mounted their supreme effort to win the war.
Finally, we profile Sgt. Roy Diaz a survivor of the infamous Bataan Death March and a local Salinas farmer that somehow endured more than 3 years as a POW in the most brutal conditions imaginable. If you would like to meet some real heroes, be sure to watch this episode.

Emma Prush Farm Park/Luis Valdez (Episode #405H)

KQED Plus: Sat, Feb 2, 2013 -- 2:30 PM

This week we are visiting the Emma Prusch Farm Park, not far from downtown San Jose. This was an actual working farm from 1870 until 1969. The Farm is now run by the City of San Jose and the Department of Parks and Recreation. It's a great place to bring kids and learn about life on a farm. We're going play with some animals and we'll learn about some really interesting gardening projects going on here.
We'll also meet playwright and film director Luis Valdez, the man behind the camera for the films Zoot Suit and La Bamba. Valdez spent part of his childhood not far from here as a migrant farm worker. We'll also meet activist and attorney Carol Ruth Silver. During the early days of the Civil Rights Movement she was one of the original Freedom Riders.
