    Colored Frames A reflection on the last 50 years in African-American, exploring the influences, inspirations and experiences of black artists. Beginning at the height of the Civil Rights Era and leading up to the present, this program provides a truthful, unflinching look at often-ignored artists and their progeny. Impressionistic video collages showcase the wide variety, both thematically and stylistically, of contemporary pieces of black artists working in the genres of illustration, abstraction and surrealism, among others. It also chronicles the black artist's struggle for visibility and acceptance in mainstream art society as well as their experiences challenging assumptions about what constitutes "blackness," even within their own community. duration 56:07   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Ghosts of Amistad: In the Footsteps of the Rebels This documentary is based on Marcus Rediker's 2012 book The Amistad Rebellion: An Atlantic Odyssey of Slavery and Freedom. It chronicles a trip made by academics and historians to Sierra Leone in May of 2013 as they retrace the path of the 53 Africans who rebelled against their captors and seized the slave schooner Amistad in 1839, leading to a watershed US Supreme Court decision. Their goal: to visit the 10 villages where the Amistad rebels once lived; interview the elders about their history and how the incident is remembered; and search for the long-lost ruins of Lomboko, the slave trading factory where the Amistad Africans were incarcerated and loaded onto a slave ship bound for the New World. By interviewing local villagers, fishermen and truck drivers, and accessing their oral accounts, the program aims to recover the lost history of the Amistad insurrection, told from a seldom-voiced perspective in the historical struggle against slavery. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Washington Week [#5634H] * Just one month after entering the Oval Office, President Trump told reporters during his first solo press conference that the White House is a "fine-tuned machine" and dismissed reports of chaos in his administration. The president faces new questions about his administration's ties to Russia after the resignation of his national security adviser and new scrutiny about whether anyone in his campaign had improper contact with Russian officials.
    * The feud between the president and intelligence community also intensified this week when Trump promised to crack down on "illegal" leaks of classified information and is promising an investigation into intelligence agencies.
    * Meanwhile, calls are growing on Capitol Hill from Republicans and Democrats for an investigation into the connection between the White House and Russia. Some GOP leaders are worried that the distractions are stalling progress pushing their agenda of tax reform and repealing the Affordable Care Act.
    We will examine the West Wing power struggles and potential conflicts the Trump administration has with Russia with: Suzanne Malveaux of CNN, Dan Balz of The Washington Post, Alexis Simendinger of Real Clear Politics, Nancy Youssef of BuzzFeed News, and Ed O'Keefe of The Washington Post.

    America Reframed [#501] A New Color: The Art of Being Edythe Boone Long before Black Lives Matter became a rallying cry, Edythe Boone embodied that truth as an activist, an educator, a great-grandmother, and foremost an artist. When a deeply personal tragedy ignites a national outcry, everything that Edy has worked so tirelessly for comes into question. From humble Harlem beginnings herself, the indefatigable "Edy" has for decades introduced underserved youth and seniors to the transformative power of art. Having helped her students use mural making to grapple with the disproportional shootings of young black men, the issue hits home when her nephew Eric Garner dies in police custody, his last words: "I can't breathe." The tragedy evokes the powerful and deep questions that many artists and activists face: has her nearly eight decades of social justice work meant something? Has it been worth the sacrifice? Can building multicultural bridges through art bring about positive change? Edy's reaction shows the depth of her clear-eyed, compassionate commitment to building a just and peaceful community. A New Color illuminates the social issues of our time and shows how the work of one woman reverberates throughout a community to inspire a powerful chorus: "Our lives matter and we will not be disempowered by those who judge us for our age, gender, or the color of their skin." duration 56:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)
