    Summer Hill From the late 19th century until the civil rights movement, the black people of Cartersville, Georgia (near Atlanta) lived exclusively in the Summer Hill section of town. The documentary SUMMER HILL is a compelling look at the influence of one small, tightly knit community - its school, churches and civic leaders - on its residents. Despite poverty, racism and limited opportunity, Summer Hill - and its segregated school - flourished for four generations. Summer Hill produced Georgia's first black Supreme Court justice; a famous Motown songwriter; teachers, ministers, doctors, lawyers and other professionals; and many others who have made major contributions to their hometown and to society. In their own words, the people of Summer Hill tell the empowering story of their community, and reveal its lasting legacy of hope. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Jewish Film Showcase [#102] Carvalho's Journey A real-life 19th century American western adventure story about Solomon Nunes Carvalho, an observant Sephardic Jew born in 1815 in Charleston, South Carolina. In 1853, traveling with John Fremont's 5th Westward Expedition through Kansas, Colorado, Utah, and California, Carvalho became one of the first photographers to document the sweeping vistas and treacherous terrain of the far American West. Living alongside mountain men, Native Americans, and Mormons, Carvalho overcame enormous odds to produce beautiful art: daguerreotypes that became the lens through which the world experienced the West. The film interweaves stunning HD digital and 16mm film landscape cinematography, rare 19th century photographs, Carvalho's surviving artwork and daguerreotypes, and interviews with scholars and artists, including modern day daguerreotypist Robert Shlaer who recreates Carvalho's original daguerreotypes on location. The documentary is narrated by award winning actor Michael Stuhlbarg (Boardwalk Empire, Steve Jobs) with original music by Jamie Saft (composer, Murderball). duration 1:28:15   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Our American Family: The Mays The first half of the 1900's represents the last era of American life that, for most families, began largely unchanged from the generations that came before. Courage brought 17-year-old Jacob May to the US from Germany in 1879 in search of a better life. That same courage enabled his family to rescue 200 Jews from Nazi Germany. Moving from poverty to prosperity, the May Hosiery Mill grew through three generations to contribute commerce and compassion within the Nashville community and beyond. Deeply committed to one another, bolstered by good humor, theirs is a story of fearless hope and courage. duration 29:00   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    America Reframed [#409] Dog Days Dog Days is directed and produced by Laura Waters Hinson and Kasey Kirby, a filmmaking duo based in Washington, DC. After losing his job in 2009, Coite Manuel sets off to build his dream business with the help of two unlikely women: Deane, his harp-playing aunt, and Siyone, an East African hotdog vendor and single mother of four. Staking his meager life savings on a vision to revive Washington, D.C.'s dwindling hotdog vending community, Coite faces bewildering challenges, from hostile city regulations to an entrenched local monopoly to the sudden popularity of food trucks. Even though success doesn't come easily, the characters fight to maintain hope in the face of adversity. Filmed over the course of four years, Dog Days follows its colorful characters as they navigate the contentious underworld of street food in the nation's capital. A captivating portrait of American entrepreneurship, Dog Days explores themes of immigration, vocation, and the power of perseverance. Featuring original songs by indie artists such as Sleeping at Last, Zach Williams, Andy Zipf, and others, Dog Days journeys to a world where the top dogs of big business meet the underdogs of street food in a comically serious caper about the promise and struggle of the American Dream. duration 1:56:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    Around The Corner with John McGivern [#101] Eagle River Eagle River stole our hearts. This is a community that has really figured out how to work, live and play all year long. Claims to fame? Eagle River is home to largest freshwater chain of lakes in the world, is the snowmobile capital of the world and the hockey capital of Wisconsin. Outdoor enthusiasts know all that, but John didn't. Are you surprised? What John did know are friends who come to play here only in the winter and others who come only in the summer, so he decided it would be necessary to experience both seasons. Oh, he experienced two extremely different seasons, all right! It was 6 degrees below zero and windy in January and 92 degrees and humid in August. And the truth is, the whole crew loved every minute. The kind people and beautiful scenery year round more than made up for a few lost toes! What a wonderful place to start our new season. duration 26:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    Closing The Gap: 50 Years Seeking Equal Pay Half a century after President Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act, women in both high-paying, high-growth STEM careers and those in part-time, low-wage jobs still only make, on average, 77 cents for every dollar earned by men. In that time span, the current wage gap improved at a rate of less than half a cent per year; if it continues at that pace, the wage gap will not close completely until 2053.
    Month to month, women - primary or co-breadwinners in 6 out of every 10 American families - face greater financial burdens in meeting living costs such as food, housing, transportation, health care and child care. The wage gap also limits their options to afford education. And across the span of a lifetime, women face less financial stability heading into retirement, with fewer pensions and lower Social Security payments to sustain them.
    In front of a live studio audience, this program scrutinizes hotly debated statistics and moves beyond highly politicized and over-simplified talking points to explore the factors contributing to the wage gap and strategize on ways to attain equal pay. CNBC's Sharon Epperson serves as the program host, with guests including the namesake of the 2009 Fair Pay Act, Lilly Ledbetter; National Organization for Women (NOW) President Terry O'Neill, American Association of University Women (AAUW) Executive Director and CEO Linda Hallman, Ms. Foundation for Women CEO Teresa Younger and YWCA-USA CEO Dr. Dara Richardson-Heron.
    The program offers advice for overcoming wage secrecy policies in the workplace and researching fair salaries for jobs; considers pathways to improved public policies; arms women with the information and skills they need to earn fair pay at all points on the career continuum; and provides tips on achieving a financially secure retirement.

    Nature [#3110H] Snow Monkeys The Japanese macaque, or snow monkey, is the most northern-living monkey in the world, surviving winter temperatures below 15 degrees. It is a very intelligent species, and the only animal other than humans and raccoons that is known to wash its food before eating it. Macaques have other unusual behaviors, including communal bathing in hot springs and rolling snowballs for fun. Also, in recent studies it has been found that Japanese macaques can develop different accents, like humans. It was found that macaques in areas separated by only a couple of hundred miles can have very different pitches in their calls, their form of communication. duration 55:46   SRND51 TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
