Unique among black leaders, he took the fight directly to the powerful white elite, gaining allies in business and government, including three presidents.

    European Journal [#3207] Ukraine: Protestors' Right to Rise Up UKRAINE: REINFORCEMENTS FROM LVIV - Many of the opponents of the government currently demonstrating in Kiev come from western Ukraine. A great deal of the support comes from Lviv. The mayor of Lviv is especially proud of his city. Every day dozens of demonstrators travel in buses to the occupied Maidan Nezalezhnosti, Independence Square, in Kiev. In the university city of Lviv, people are especially disappointed with President Viktor Yanukovych's turn towards Russia. EU flags can be seen waving from cars and apartments everywhere as a sign of protest.
    SPAIN: PRINCESS IN COURT - In the face of a corruption scandal, Spain's Princess Cristina has had to appear in court over accusations of tax fraud and money-laundering. The popularity of Spain's royal family is at a new low. Although the family is supposed to be on holiday, Princess Cristina was called to appear for questioning before the court in Palma de Mallorca. It's the first time that a Spanish royal has been summoned to appear in criminal proceedings since the restoration of the monarchy. The investigation in Palma de Mallorca is linked to a corruption case against Cristina's husband, Inaki Urdangarin, which has been going on for years.
    ROMANIA: BEHIND THE SMUGGLERS' SMOKESCREEN (EUROPE BY NIGHT SERIES) - No sooner does the sun set in Europe than its nocturnal life awakens. Police hunt smugglers on Romania's border to Ukraine, and European Journal starts its new series: Europe by Night - Dealings After Dark. Cigarette smuggling leaves a dent of ten billion euros in the budgets of EU member states. The trafficking is especially rife on the EU's outer borders. In scarcely any region in the world are cigarettes as cheap as they are in Eastern Europe. Because that's been the case for years, a veritable smugglers' paradise has developed. So every night, Romanian customs officials lie in wait with thermal imaging cameras on the border to Ukraine. But it's not just the customs officials who are getting more professional; so are the smugglers. They even use hang gliders to fly tons of cigarettes to the EU.
    BELGIUM: EXPELLING EU CITIZENS - A Belgian politician wants to protect her country's social welfare system from what she sees as an influx of immigrants taking advantage of it. She says unemployed EU citizens should not be a burden on state coffers. The right of EU citizens to work in all member states is a basic pillar of the European Union. Every EU citizen can stay in another EU country for three months to look for work. Those who find it receive the right to remain in the country indefinitely. Those who don't are threatened with expulsion. It's a regulation Belgium is making use of more frequently. In 2013 it expelled more EU citizens than ever before.

    POV [#2601] Homegoings Through the eyes of funeral director Isaiah Owens, the beauty and grace of African American funerals are brought to life. Filmed at Owens Funeral Home in New York City's historic Harlem neighborhood, "Homegoings" takes an up-close look at the rarely seen world of undertaking in the black community, where funeral rites draw on a rich palette of tradition, history and celebration. Combining cinema verite with intimate interviews and archival photographs, the film paints a portrait of the dearly departed, their grieving families and a man who sends loved ones "home." duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
  • MORNING
  • 6:00 am
    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)

    Local USA [#113] Drive Like A Girl This documentary follows New York's champion all-girls robotics team, The Iron Maidens, just one year after they beat more than 60 male-dominated teams in a regional competition. Though they advanced to the national stage in Atlanta, GA, they lost before winning it all. Now, they've returned for another shot at the title. They had six weeks to design, program and build a robot alongside their brother team and one of their competitors, the Sciborgs. The struggles they face reveal what it takes to be a group of girls excelling at a boys' game and their successes are a glimpse at the changing roles of females in science and technology. duration 26:41   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)
