The Longoria Affair (Episode #1204H)

KQED 9: Tue, Sep 24, 2013 -- 11:00 PM

Private Felix Longoria fought and died while fighting the Japanese during World War II. But when his body was sent back his small hometown in Texas, the only funeral parlor there refused to hold a wake for the Mexican American GI because "the whites would not like it." The incident would ripple outward, launching the career of Lyndon B. Johnson, landing the undertaker in a mental institution, engendering hostile recriminations for the next 50 years, and launching the Mexican American civil rights movement.

The Powerbroker: Whitney Young's Fight for Civil Rights (Episode #1408H)

KQED World: Fri, Sep 6, 2013 -- 2:00 AM

Whitney M. Young Jr. was one of the most celebrated -- and controversial -- leaders of the civil rights era. This documentary follows his journey from segregated Kentucky to head of the National Urban League. Unique among black leaders, he took the fight directly to the powerful white elite, gaining allies in business and government, including three presidents. Young had the difficult tasks of calming the fears of white allies, relieving the doubts of fellow civil rights leaders and responding to attacks from the militant Black Power movement.
