    AfroPop: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange [#501] A Lot Like You Eliaichi Kimaro is a mixed-race, first-generation American with a Tanzanian father and Korean mother. When her retired father moves back to Tanzania, Eliaichi begins a project that evocatively examines the intricate fabric of multiracial identity, and grapples with the complex ties that children have to the cultures of their parents. Kimaro decides to document her father's path back to his family and Chagga culture. In the process, she learns more deeply about the heritage that she took for granted as a child. Yet as she talks to more family members, especially her aunts, she uncovers a cycle of sexual violence that resonates with her work and life in the United States. When Kimaro speaks with her parents about the oppression that her aunts face, she faces a jarring disconnect between immigrant generations on questions of patriarchy and violence. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    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)

    Abolitionists: American Experience, The [#103] The Abolitionists, Part Three The battle between pro-slavery and free-soil contingents rises to fever pitch. During his raid on Harpers Ferry, John Brown is captured, then executed, becoming a martyr for the cause. Abraham Lincoln is elected president in 1860. Southern states secede, war breaks out and the conflict unexpectedly drags on. On New Year's Day 1863, it is announced that Lincoln has emancipated the slaves in rebel territory. African-American men may now enlist in the Union forces; two of Douglass' sons go to war. In December 1865, the Thirteenth Amendment is ratified, banning slavery in all states - forever. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1621] SEQUENCING THE GENOME: Science has made rapid strides in genetic testing - especially in children - to understand serious birth defects or congenital abnormalities, or the child's predisposition to disease later in life. But as Lucky Severson reports, guidelines for the use of this technology are lacking, leaving the questions who should be tested, and how much should parents be told.
    LILLIAN DANIEL: A popular United Church of Christ pastor says she is fed up with atheists and everyone else who criticizes the Christian church, among them the growing number who say they are "spiritual but not religious." Daniel tells Bob Abernethy what she thinks is important is a church where "we worship a God who invented us, not the other way around."
