    Moyers & Company [#331H] Going Home with Maya Angelou Over the years and on several occasions, Bill Moyers interviewed Maya Angelou, the legendary author who died in late May. In this first of two programs celebrating her extraordinary life and legacy, Moyers revisits an episode from his 1982 series "Creativity" in which he and Angelou returned to the small town of Stamps, Arkansas, where she spent much of her childhood.
    Walking with Moyers, she remembers a place where she was "terribly hurt - and vastly loved." Stamps, Arkansas, was deeply segregated, divided by railroad tracks that split the town into black and white. "This was more or less a no man's land here. If you were black you never felt really safe when you simply crossed the railroad tracks," she says. "And I used to have to walk over here. Oh gosh, I hated it. I had no protection at all over there. I had an idea of protection on this side. I had my grandmother on this side. I had the church, my uncle, and all my people were on this side. So I had an idea of protection, but there I would be all alone and I loathed it, crossing those railroad tracks." Angelou, who had been traumatized by rape at the age of seven-and-a-half and did not speak for several years, found her voice again with the help of a family friend, Mrs. Flowers, who "told me poetry was music written for the human voice" and encouraged her to read aloud. The great writers she read, the music she heard in church, and the scars of racial discrimination guided her toward the writing career that made her famous.
    "I am a writer and Stamps must remain for me in that nebulous, unreal reality, because I'm a poet and I have to draw from these shadows, these densities, these phantasmagorias for my poetry," Angelou tells Moyers. "I don't want it to become a place on the map, because the truth is you never can leave home. You take it with you everywhere you go."

    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5405H] The Obama administration is considering airstrikes in Iraq to help rescue tens of thousands of religious minorities who are stranded on mountaintops after fleeing the militant group ISIS according to a report in The New York Times. The White House would not confirm the report on Thursday but did say the situation in Iraq was on the verge of becoming a "humanitarian catastrophe." In recent weeks fighters from the Islamic State have seized control of the country's largest dam, the water supply and main electricity source. Helene Cooper of The New York Times broke the story and will join us to report on the options the US is considering to get humanitarian aid to displaced Iraqis, stop the aggressive assault by ISIS, and deal with the failures of Iraq's political leaders.
    * During this week's US-Africa Summit in Washington, DC, President Obama pushed to expand trade and hailed "a new emerging Africa" rich with US business opportunities. Nearly 50 heads of state attended the three-day conference where more than $33 billion in US public and private investment was pledged to the continent. Doyle McManus of the Los Angeles Times will explain how the US hopes to expand its ties with Africa which is home to 6 of the world's fastest-growing economies. Gwen takes a closer look at the issues that were eclipsed at this week's conference including terrorism, corruption and the Ebola outbreak in this week's Gwen's Take.
    * Plus, Amy Walter of The Cook Political Report will have analysis of the latest public opinion polls that show Americans remain frustrated with Congress, the president, and their own struggle to recover from the financial meltdown of 2008; and she will explain how these issues may factor into the midterm elections.

    Focus On Europe [#3232] Backlash of Gaza Fighting Increase Fears In France France: Protests in Little Jerusalem - France is home to Europe's largest Jewish and Muslim communities. The start of the Israeli military offensive in the Gaza strip has prompted a number of anti-Israel protests. In Sarcelles, a suburb of Paris, Jews and Muslims have traditionally lived peacefully side by side - shopping at the stores or playing soccer together. Now many Jewish families are concerned for their safety due to antagonism and threats from Muslim protesters, and have bought weapons for self-defense. Imams and rabbis are trying to de-escalate the tension and aggression. Turkey: Miners in danger - A mining accident in the town of Soma cost the lives of several hundred men in May. It was the latest in a long line of mining-related disasters in Turkey. Poor safety standards have left the miners angry and frustrated with the government. Coal mining is an important part of Turkey's economy. Conditions for workers have worsened since the government sold many of its state-owned mines around 15 years ago. Some mines are illegal, with accidents frequently covered up. The miners work for low wages, without protective clothing or emergency measures. A few weeks ago Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan - currently on the campaign trail for the presidency - promised to find a solution concerning safety standards. Britain: Cheaper rent against squatters - London house prices recently saw a record 25% rise over 12 months. Real estate owners are recruiting low-rent tenants to keep the properties occupied - and safe. Landlords are luring people with favorable rents - including offices, gymnasiums and churches. For 600 euros a month you can move in as a temporary tenant. As a so-called "property guardian" you also protect the space from squatters. Londoners on an average working income find it difficult to find affordable accommodation, especially in the more exclusive parts of London. The Czech Republic: Russian tourists abandon Karlovy Vary - The divisive political fall-out from the war in Ukraine has even reached the picturesque spa town of Karlovy Vary. It had become a favorite vacation spot among Russian tourists - but this year they haven't been so eager. Karlovy Vary stands to lose millions of euros from the tourists staying away. While many Germans and Austrians hop over the border for a day, most Russians would spend weeks there for a long relaxing vacation. Each summer nearly 90,000 Russians visit the town, but this year only half that number have come. The separatist uprising in Ukraine has many Russian tourists reluctant to travel around Europe for fear of not being granted visas. duration 26:10   STEREO TVG

    This American Land [#402] Owyhee Canyonlands, Sustainable Alaskan Village, Algae Power, Fungi Fuel Much of Oregon is a desert; and in the dry, remote southeastern corner of the state there's a wild and captivating canyon landscape carved by the Owyhee River. It's been described as the largest intact, unprotected stretch of the American West, but it needs more protection from development pressure, including mining. A robust campaign for wilderness designation is making progress. We travel to a remote Alaskan village, Igiugig, where young native Alaskans are adopting new technologies and green ethics to build a healthy, sustainable future while keeping true to their traditions. With another report on emerging biofuels, we learn about new advances in converting algae into a wide range of useful products, including oil, growing the algae with by-products from corn ethanol distilleries. We meet a scientist in Montana who searches the globe for botanical specimens, discovering fungi and bacteria in the tissues of some plants that can be converted into a diesel-like fuel. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    KQED NEWSROOM [#138H] Gavin Newsom Interview, State of Bay Area Arts, Legislative Updates
    Interview with Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom
    As Colorado and Washington forge ahead with a newly legal marijuana industry, recent polls show a growing number of Americans support legalizing pot. Four years ago, California voters rejected a statewide ballot measure to legalize recreational marijuana use here. But plans are underway to put the question before voters again in 2016. Gov. Jerry Brown opposes the idea. But Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom is chairing a statewide task force to study the issue, and he spoke to Thuy Vu about it.

Faith-based groups - Catholic, Jewish, Muslim, Orthodox, Mennonite, and more - in Jordan, home now to 2 large Syrian refugee camps, are doing what they can to help.

    THE DECEMBER PROJECT - Sara Davidson is a best-selling writer and journalist who confesses she felt completely unprepared to face the reality of her own mortality. In 2009, she met Jewish Renewal founder Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi. They spent every Friday together for 2 years discussing what the spiritual teacher believed helps one prepare for death. The rabbi died this summer on July 3 at the age of 89. Their conversations culminated in Davidson's book The December Project, named for what Reb Zalman referred to as the December of life. "When you feel you're coming to the end of your tour of duty, what is the spiritual work of that time," he asked, "and how do we prepare for the mystery?" (Originally broadcast May 2, 2014.)

It follows Parhat Ablat, a 20-year-old Uyghur shepherd, as he attends the region's racially segregated Xinjiang University and forms an integrated baseball team.
    Parhat is on a fraught quest to raise his people out of what he calls their "spirit sickness." While at the helm of Xinjiang University's first mixed-race team, he also starts a baseball program at a minority elementary school. For Parhat, baseball is more than a game; it's a vehicle for spiritual transformation. Finally, after a year of practice in the shadow of tense ethnic relations, Parhat and the university team travel 2000 miles for their only game of the season - against a team of Tibetans on the Qinghai Plateau.

    Nature [#3109] Touching The Wild Joe Hutto's idea of research is anything but normal, dedicating seven years of his life to becoming a wild mule deer. The herd would ordinarily run from any human but, incredibly, these keenly intelligent animals come to regard this stranger as one of their own. Accepted by the matriarch, he walks among them, is even groomed by them, and can lie with a pregnant doe talking to its unborn fawns. As he crosses the species divide, Joe is tapping into a new understanding about these elusive animals, literally entering a deer society. The captivating joy he feels for his new family is nothing short of infectious, but this human predator also learns to see the world from the point of view of prey -- and it's an experience that will ultimately rock him to his very core; sharing their world so personally finally takes a toll that sends him back to his own kind. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
