    Karamu: 100 Years in the House The word "Karamu" comes from a Swahili word meaning "a place of joyful gatherings." For the past 100 years, the Karamu House in Cleveland, Ohio - the oldest African-American theater in the United States - has lived up to its name, serving as a community center for the arts and maintaining a legacy of innovation and diversity. Narrated by James Pickens, Jr. from ABC television's Grey's Anatomy, KARAMU: 100 YEARS IN THE HOUSE is a 30-minute documentary which tells the story behind this important theater in America's arts and culture history. Karamu House has come to be known as a respected training ground and launching pad for many nationally known actors, playwrights and artists, including poet and playwright Langston Hughes, and author, folklorist and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston. The film shows how the theater's past parallels African-American history over the past 100 years, and even how it directly intersected with the civil rights movement when it sent bus loads of activists to march on Washington. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Stories from the Stage [#113] School Days: Student Tales Remember school? It's where kids learn a lot, and make friends for life. It's also a maelstrom of swirling loyalties, where knowledge sometimes comes only after pain. This "Stories from the Stage" looks at school through the eyes of teen storytellers. Cecelia Viverios battles a hidden learning disability that leaves teachers, her parents, and Cecelia herself baffled; Anna Kamens reluctantly welcomes a fourth grade newcomer who struggles socially; and Furquann Syed, teased for his name and Muslim heritage, finds that violent solutions have a down side. Three storytellers, three interpretations of "School Days," hosted by Theresa Okokon. duration 26:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Great Yellowstone Thaw [#103H] It's summer in Yellowstone, and with soaring temperatures and drought comes the risk of wildfires. All the water from 'The Thaw' has flowed away and a lack of rain has left the ground tinder dry. When a major blaze breaks out in the Beartooth Mountains, wildlife cameraman Jeff Hogan scrambles a team to see if the family of Great Gray Owls he's been following all year has survived. The beaver family now has three young kits. But Jeff is shocked when their mother suddenly moves them out of the family home. It's a risky journey over dams and upriver and not something he's ever witnessed before. Meanwhile the Pinnacle Peak pack of wolves near Jackson also has young and in a year that's been tough for Yellowstone's top predator, wildlife photographer Charlie Hamilton James unravels why this pack is doing better than most. Up in the Gallatin Mountains are two orphaned young grizzlies. Host Kirk Johnson joins bear expert Casey Anderson to witness the relationship between man and bear on ranch land, where there's a balance of mutual tolerance. But with no mum alive to teach them, these yearlings are vulnerable and Casey is worried. As our climate changes, one of the biggest signs in Yellowstone is the effect on pikas. These alpine mammals rely on the cold high up in the mountains. But as temperatures slowly increase, the pikas are struggling. Kirk meets a scientist studying them to see what's going to happen when there's nowhere left to go but the sky. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Writer's Roots: Kurt Vonnegut's Indianapolis How did the most famous Hoosier author since James Whitcomb Riley get his start? What about Indianapolis inspired him? Why did he keep coming back to Indianapolis in his books? A WRITER'S ROOTS: KURT VONNEGUT'S INDIANAPOLIS explores Vonnegut's relationship with his hometown, his children and family life, and the people and places that shaped him. Using archival photos, a 1991 interview with Vonnegut himself, along with interviews with his children, friends and Hoosier authors James Alexander Thom (Panther In The Sky), John Green (The Fault In Our Stars), and Dan Wakefield (Going All The Way), viewers discover how Indianapolis left its mark on one of the 20th century's most influential writers and his writing. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    American Masters [#2503] Margaret Mitchell: American Rebel No ordinary writer and no ordinary woman -- "Gone with the Wind" created two of the world's greatest lovers, Scarlett and Rhett, won a Pulitzer Prize in 1937 and has sold more than 30 million copies. Born into Atlanta's upper crust in 1900, Margaret Mitchell challenged stifling social restrictions at every turn. A charismatic force to be reckoned with, she had a great sense of humor, was one of Georgia's first newspaper women and was extremely generous with the money she made from "Gone with the Wind." She struggled with the changing role of women and the liberation of African Americans but also suffered from lifelong bouts of depression, until a tragic accident lead to her death in 1949. This film examines the amazing endurance of "Gone with the Wind" and reveals the seminal events of Mitchell's life through dramatic re-enactments based on her letters, as scenes from the movie weave together her life and her work. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
