    Slovakia: Treasures in the Heart of Europe A country of lush forests and mountains surrounded by hidden hills, Slovakia is a land rich with historical and cultural treasures. Centrally located in Europe, Slovakia was obscured for centuries within the Austro-Hungarian Empire and later by the establishment of Czechoslovakia, and has remained relatively unknown to much of the world.
    In this program, host Pat Uskert and Slovak guide Mila Kissova explore the country's history, culture and breathtaking landscapes, and spotlight the many castles and medieval towns - from the capital city of Bratislava, located on the Danube, to the rugged peaks of the High Tatra Mountains. The travel documentary features modern and ancient castles, historic cathedrals, a visit to the Andy Warhol Museum, music and dance festivals, traditional villages, hikes in national parks, and treks in the Tatra Mountains. For both travelers and history lovers, it promises an exciting journey into lands seldom traveled.

    African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross [#105H] Rise! (1940-1968) Rise! examines the long road to civil rights, when the deep contradictions in American society finally became unsustainable. Beginning in World War II, African Americans who helped fight fascism abroad came home to face the same old racial violence. But this time, mass media-from print to radio and TV-broadcast that injustice to the world, planting seeds of resistance. And the success of black entrepreneurs and entertainers fueled African American hopes and dreams. In December 1955, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white man on a city bus in Montgomery, Alabama, heralding the dawn of a new movement of quiet resistance, with the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as its public face. Before long, masses of African Americans practiced this nonviolent approach at great personal risk to integrate public schools, lunch counters and more. As the civil rights movement scored one historic victory after another, non-violence was still all too often met with violence-until finally, enough was enough. By 1968, Dr. King, the apostle of non-violence, would be assassinated, unleashing a new call for "Black Power" across the country. duration 56:16   STEREO TVPG-V (Secondary audio: DVI)

    African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross [#106H] A More Perfect Union (1968-2013) After 1968, African Americans set out to build a bright new future on the foundation of the civil rights movement's victories, but a growing class disparity threatened to split the black community in two. As hundreds of African Americans won political office across the country and the black middle class made unprecedented progress, larger economic and political forces isolated the black urban poor in the inner cities, vulnerable to new social ills and an epidemic of incarceration. Yet African Americans of all backgrounds came together to support Illinois Senator Barack Obama in his historic campaign for the presidency of the United States. When he won in 2008, many hoped that America had finally transcended race and racism. By the time of his second victory, it was clear that many issues, including true racial equality, remain to be resolved. Now we ask: How will African Americans help redefine the United States in the years to come? duration 56:16   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
