    Washington Week [#5635H] * President Trump will deliver his first address to Congress next week where he will defend the agenda he has pursued in his first month in office. His actions on immigration and transgender rights have energized the Republican base but have also led to a series of protests across the country that his administration dismissed as paid agitators. For the first time, the president condemned a wave of anti-Semitic incidents that have been increasing this year.
    * The lawmakers Trump will be speaking to on Tuesday experienced voter frustration firsthand this week in boisterous town halls across the nation. Many angry voters confronted Republicans about their plans to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.
    We will discuss the Trump administration's agenda and the growing undercurrent of anger spreading across the country with: Robert Costa of The Washington Post, Julie Hirschfeld Davis of The New York Times, Dan Balz of The Washington Post, and Molly Ball of The Atlantic.

    Black Ballerina This program shares a story of passion, opportunity, heartbreak and triumph of the human spirit. Set in the over-whelmingly white world of classical dance, it tells the stories of several black women from different generations who fell in love with ballet.
    60 years ago, while pursuing their dreams of careers in classical dance, Joan Myers Brown, Delores Browne and Raven Wilkinson (the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo's first black ballerina) confronted racism, exclusion and unequal opportunity in segregated mid-century America. In 2015, 3 young black women also pursue careers as ballerinas, and find that many of the same obstacles their predecessors faced are still evident in the ballet world today.
    Through interviews with current and former ballet dancers along with engaging archival photos and film, the documentary uses the ethereal world of ballet to engage viewers on a subject that reaches far outside the art world and compels viewers to think about larger issues of exclusion, equal opportunity and change.

    Suze Orman's Financial Solutions for You We all have financial issues and problems. Suze Orman's latest special sharply focuses on her helping individual viewers "find financial solutions for you." As always, Suze's advice is based not just on numbers, but on a critical understanding of ourselves and our emotional needs. The special's central theme is that our financial decision-making should be guided by an understanding of "the goal of money." As Suze perceptively defines it: "The goal of money is to make you feel secure." Our financial solutions should work to fulfill that goal. In addition, Suze stresses the importance of making financial decisions that you feel comfortable with. Financial problems are caused when you do things with money that do not seem "right" to you, despite pressures and advice from others. duration 1:57:06   STEREO TVG
