In The Game (#421) Duration: 1:26:46 STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

The the ups and downs of a girls' soccer team reveal the very real obstacles that low-income students confront in their quest for higher education. Set in a primarily Hispanic neighborhood, Kelly High School on Chicago's south side is an inner city public school struggling to provide the basics for their students, many of whom do not make it to college, either because they cannot compete academically or because their families do not have the financial resources to send them to college. The girls face an uneven playing field - or in the case of the girls at Kelly High School, no soccer field at all - little or no support, problems at home, uncertain futures, discrimination, and poverty, but remain undaunted thanks to their teammates and the dedicated mentoring of their coach.

We Like It Like That (#422) Duration: 1:26:46 STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

This program tells the story of Latin boogaloo is New York City. It is a product of the melting pot, a colorful expression of 1960s Latino soul, straight from the streets of El Barrio, the South Bronx and Brooklyn.
Starring Latin boogaloo legends like Joe Bataan, Johnny Colon and Pete Rodriguez, the doc explores this lesser-known, but pivotal moment in Latin music history, through original interviews, music recordings, live performances, dancing and rare archival footage and images.
From its origins to its recent resurgence in popularity, the film tells the story of a sound that redefined a generation and was too funky to keep down.
