    Chasing The Dream: a PBS Newshour Weekend Special Hosted by Alison Stewart, this special edition presents some of its signature reporting from Chasing the Dream, a multi-platform public media initiative on poverty and opportunity. There were no bigger issues fueling the chaotic 2016 election than jobs and the increasing number of Americans who feel that a recovering economy simply passed them by. From the rural towns of Eastern Kentucky to the heart of Silicon Valley, this one-hour program highlights stories of both struggles and solutions-and sheds new light on the growing economic divide felt by millions of Americans. duration 56:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    Against All Odds: The Fight for a Black Middle Class New York Times Journalist Bob Herbert narrates this documentary about the extraordinary difficulty African-Americans have faced in their efforts to establish and maintain a middle class standard of living. The film will surprise a lot of people. The black middle class has never been as large or as robust as most Americans - including most black Americans - have wanted to believe.
    Nearly 40% of all black children are poor. For every dollar of wealth in the hands of the average white family, the typical black family has only a little more than a nickel. And the devastating effects of the Great Recession and housing foreclosure crisis, which hit blacks much harder than whites, left the black middle class virtually on life support.
    With a compelling narrative, dramatic historical footage and a series of deeply personal interviews, Bob Herbert explains why this disturbing and often tragic state of affairs exists a century and a half after slavery and a half-century after the heyday of the civil rights movement.

    Washington Week [#5702] As intelligence agencies and Congress continue to investigate the scope of Russia's efforts to meddle in the presidential election, a newly revealed meeting among President Trump's son, son-in-law, a top adviser and a "Russian government attorney" in June 2016 is raising new questions about potential collusion. Emails released by Donald Trump Jr. on Tuesday detail the meeting that was set up to provide "information that would incriminate Hillary [Clinton] and her dealings with Russia" as "part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump."
    The president has defended his son's decision to meet with the attorney as standard opposition research, but the younger Mr. Trump is facing criticism from lawmakers in both parties who believe law enforcement should have been consulted. The Senate Judiciary Committee is asking Trump Jr. to testify next week as the cloud of questions about Russia continues to follow the Trump administration.
    *Plus, Senate Republicans released not one but two new plans to replace the Affordable Care Act. Does the GOP have the votes to pass either measure?
    *Robert Costa will discuss new details of the Russia investigation and how it is impacting the rest of the legislative agenda in Washington with:
    Mark Mazzetti of The New York Times
    Ashley Parker of The Washington Post
    Michael Scherer of TIME Magazine
    Amy Walter of The Cook Political Report

    Beyond The Mirage: The Future of Water in the West A prolonged drought in the West has put increased water pressure on the Colorado River and has fostered a unique blend of competition and collaboration among Western states. The search for solutions, some homegrown and some found abroad, will illuminate the path forward for the entire Colorado Basin and quite possibly the entire nation.
    This program explores the West's water crisis in detail, including how Americans arrived at this situation. It also examines emerging water conservation technologies and how they might offer solutions to this global crisis.
    Through interviews with noted public policy and environmental experts, including Robert Glennon, Regents Professor & Udall Professor, Law and Public Policy; Gregg Garfin, National Climate Assessment Contributing Author, Associate Professor of Climate, Natural Resources and Policy, University of Arizona; and Patricia Mulroy, Senior Fellow, William S. Boyd School of Law, UNLV, Climate Adaptation and Environmental Policy, Brookings Institute, the documentary puts viewers at the center of this issue and prompts a candid discussion about water resources and the need for viable, sustainable solutions.
