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)

This program follows the Underground Railroad through a little-known passage to freedom in the northernmost corner of Pennsylvania. Character voices, reenactments, documents and diaries create a vivid account of Pennsylvania in the years leading up to the Civil War. duration 56:48   STEREO TVG

    Ripple of Hope On the night of Dr. Martin Luther King's murder in 1968, Robert F. Kennedy was scheduled to make an appearance in an African-American neighborhood as part of his run for the Democratic presidential nomination. Upon hearing the tragic news, Kennedy was forced to make a crucial decision: Should he venture into the heart of the Indianapolis inner city and talk to the potentially volatile crowd gathered in a park? What could he say that would assuage their grief? Should he defy the city officials who ordered him to stay away? Would his life be in danger? A RIPPLE OF HOPE tells the dramatic story of that night, and how by keeping his promise to speak in Indianapolis, Robert F. Kennedy was able to help that city avert the violence that swept the rest of the country and make a profound statement about American race relations. duration 54:36   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Hapa: One Step at a Time Race remains a powerful symbol in the US; it still is a shorthand notation for most Americans. This program speaks to how individuals of Asian and Pacific Islander descent are embracing their ethnic experiences as a symbol of change in an ever-evolving multicultural society. It is a thought-provoking exploration of what it means to be a mixed-race American today. The program is a first-person treatment of the struggles people of diverse cultural backgrounds and perspectives face. "Hapa" comes from the Hawaiian phrase hapa haole, which means half white/foreigner. Once considered a derogatory term, Hapa has come to be accepted as a way to describe a person of partial Asian ancestry. By Japanese American Midori Sperandeo, who provides a personal narrative about her evolution from a novice runner into a national class marathoner andshares the parallel path of her personal growth in searching for her racial identity. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG
