    Summer Hill From the late 19th century until the civil rights movement, the black people of Cartersville, Georgia (near Atlanta) lived exclusively in the Summer Hill section of town. The documentary SUMMER HILL is a compelling look at the influence of one small, tightly knit community - its school, churches and civic leaders - on its residents. Despite poverty, racism and limited opportunity, Summer Hill - and its segregated school - flourished for four generations. Summer Hill produced Georgia's first black Supreme Court justice; a famous Motown songwriter; teachers, ministers, doctors, lawyers and other professionals; and many others who have made major contributions to their hometown and to society. In their own words, the people of Summer Hill tell the empowering story of their community, and reveal its lasting legacy of hope. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    After The Harvest: Fighting Hunger in the Coffeelands Coffee farmers in Chiapas, Mexico greet the rainy months between May and September with a mix of hope and trepidation. Consistent rainfall is vital to their crops, but too much water makes their rural dirt roads impassable. The price of beans and corn goes up, just when income from the coffee harvest is depleted. These are "los mesesflacos," or the thin months, when families make ends meet by eating less, eating cheaper foods, or borrowing against their future. In 2010, the Optic Nerve Productions crew traveled from Mexico to Nicaragua with the help of The Coffee Trust to capture the stories of coffee farmers' struggle with seasonal hunger. Food insecurity is a well-established, annual "season" in coffee-growing communities, yet the problem is widely unknown within the specialty coffee industry. . While seasonal hunger is an incredibly complex problem, recent work suggests it is not unsolvable. "After the Harvest: Fighting Hunger in the Coffeelands" is a short film that brings the day-to-day challenges of the thin months to life in the voices of coffee farmers themselves, and shares the successes of creative projects that have been established to eliminate this annual period of food insecurity. duration 21:02   STEREO TVG

    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2417H] February 8, 2013 Guest Host: Scott Shafer.
    News Panel:
    MEDICAL MARIJUANA - Medical marijuana advocates argued this week before the California Supreme Court that cities do not have the power to ban pot dispensaries, saying that it undermines the 1996 voter-approved state law allowing cannabis for medical use. Opponents say the law's language is vague. The case has sweeping ramifications for local governments across the state and in the Bay Area, where dozens of cities have enacted dispensary bans.
    SILICON VALLEY BOOM - Community members, elected officials, executives and civic leaders convene in San Jose for this year's State of The Valley Conference, Silicon Valley's annual "town meeting," to assess the outlook for the region. Meanwhile, the annual Silicon Valley Index shows jobs, income and IPOs are all on the rise, yet the gap between rich and poor is widening, particularly among some minority groups.
    GREAT WHITE SHARK - California is closer to becoming the first state in the nation to declare great white sharks an endangered species. The Fish and Game Commission voted Wednesday to designate the predator as a candidate for the list, with the final decision pending a year-long review.
    Guests: Peter Hecht, Sacramento Bee; Kara Swisher, All Things Digital; and Paul Rogers, San Jose Mercury News.
    PEDAL POWER: THE FUTURE OF CYCLING IN THE CITY - Over the past 6 years, the number of San Franciscans using bikes for everyday trips has increased 71%. San Francisco Bicycle Coalition Executive Director Leah Shahum talks about the future of cycling following the recent release of SFMTA's Bicycle Strategy, and San Francisco's potential as a world class city for bicycling.

    Moyers & Company [#205H] Who's Widening America's Digital Divide * America has a wide digital divide - high-speed Internet access is available only to those who can afford it, at prices much higher and speeds much slower in the US than they are around the world.
    But neither has to be the case, says Susan Crawford, former special assistant to President Obama for science, technology and innovation, and author of Captive Audience: The Telecom Industry and Monopoly Power in the New Gilded Age. Crawford joins Bill to discuss how our government has allowed a few powerful media conglomerates to put profit ahead of the public interest - rigging the rules, raising prices, and stifling competition. As a result, Crawford says, all of us are at the mercy of the biggest business monopoly since Standard Oil in the first Gilded Age a hundred years ago. "The rich are getting gouged, the poor are very often left out, and this means that we're creating, yet again, two Americas, and deepening inequality through this communications inequality," Crawford tells Bill.
    * Also on the show, journalist Nick Turse describes his unprecedented efforts to compile a complete and compelling account of the Vietnam War's horror as experienced by all sides, including innocent civilians who were sucked into its violent vortex. Turse, who devoted 12 years to tracking down the true story of Vietnam, unlocked secret troves of documents, interviewed officials and veterans - including many accused of war crimes - and traveled throughout the Vietnamese countryside talking with eyewitnesses to create his book, Kill Anything That Moves: The Real American War in Vietnam.
