    Intelligence Squared [#101H] Are Elected Islamists Better Than Dictators? The popular uprisings of the Arab Spring have left a leadership void that Islamist parties have been quick to fill. A longtime supporter of former strongmen like Egypt's Mubarak and Tunisia's Ben Ali, the U. S. now faces the uncomfortable result of Arab democracy-the rise of Islamist parties that are less amenable to the West than their autocratic predecessors. Will the Islamists, who once embraced violence, slowly liberalize as they face the difficulties of state leadership? Or will it mean the growth of anti-Americanism and radicalization in the region? duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Uncommon Vision: The Life and Times of John Howard Griffin John Howard Griffin is best known as the white man who in 1959 disguised himself as a black man and then traveled anonymously through the heart of Dixie. From his experiences, he wrote Black Like Me, a groundbreaking best seller published in 1960 that today stands as a testament to Griffin's moral commitment and is a document of one of the more extraordinary events of the Civil Rights era. The book revealed the author's first-hand exposure to the harsh realities that were faced by black citizens each day in the Jim Crow South. Following the publication of the book, Griffin was the target of death threats and was hanged in effigy in his hometown in Texas. Through dramatic re-enactments, evocative readings from the book, strong archival materials, and interviews with those who knew John Howard Griffin, this revealing biography looks at the life of this remarkable social activist. It also examines how Griffin's deep spiritual commitment carried him through an uncanny life - segregated childhood in Fort Worth, a medic with the French Underground in WWII, blinded by war injuries, and a prolific writer and photographer. duration 57:14   TVG

  • 6:00 am
    Faith in the Hood Faith in the Hood is a compelling portrait of the inner city, seen through the prism of the spiritual life of its people. Southeast is the poorest neighborhood in Washington, D.C. with only one sit-down restaurant. But it has hundreds of churches and ministries. The film profiles five of them: a street ministry for former convicts and drug addicts, a socially activist storefront church, a powerful Afro-centric church, an evangelical camp for young people, and an Islamic elementary school. With insightful commentary from leading experts on African American faith, the film demonstrates the richness of inner city religion and its centrality as a defining aspect of black life. duration 55:11   STEREO TVG

    Frontline [#3105] Cliffhanger This February, as the nation faced yet another round of fiscal crises, Frontline investigated the inside history of how Washington has failed to solve the country's problems of debt and deficit. Drawing on interviews with key players in Congress and the White House, Frontline goes behind the scenes to show how a clash of politics and personalities has taken the nation's economy to the edge of the "fiscal cliff," and now to a second round of standoffs over the debt ceiling and sequestration. The film explores the deep ideological divide inside the Republican Party and the struggle between House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and House Speaker John Boehner as they take on President Obama and the Democrats. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
