    Facing Fear In this Academy Award-nominated short documentary, worlds collide when a former neo-Nazi skinhead and the gay victim of his hate crime attack meet by chance 25 years after the incident that dramatically shaped both of their lives. Together, they embark on a journey of forgiveness that challenges both to grapple with their beliefs and fears, eventually leading to an improbable collaboration - and friendship. duration 21:58   STEREO TVPG

    The Day It Snowed In Miami This documentary traces the political activism behind an equal-rights statute in Miami, and how it galvanized the gay rights movement in Florida and beyond. 35 years ago, as snowflakes prepared to dust palm trees in a city known for its warmth, Miami-Dade County lawmakers unknowingly debated an issue that would ignite a political maelstrom. The seemingly benign ordinance - essentially an addendum to the county's existing anti-discrimination legislation - sought to prohibit discrimination in housing, public accommodations or employment based on the basis of "affectional or sexual preference."
    On Jan. 18, 1977, a throng of conservatives led by singer and Florida Orange Juice spokeswoman Anita Bryant packed downtown commission chambers in protest. The commissioners ultimately passed the ordinance by a narrow 5-3 margin, but Bryant vowed to lead a repeal - and succeeded. The ordinance set back the gay-rights movement for decades; it took more than 20 years for Miami-Dade to revive and pass the law. The film also chronicles the tragic effects of the AIDS pandemic in South Florida, and the ironic, compassionate turn in public opinion towards the gay community.

  • 2:30 am
    The Committee This program chronicles the actions of the little-known Florida Legislative Investigation Committee (also known as the Johns Committee) that existed between 1956-1965.
    The committee was formed in 1956 in response to the Brown vs. Board of Education Supreme Court decision and amidst wide-spread anti-Communist fears in the country. Its initial targets were civil rights activists and members of the NAACP who were pushing for desegregation in Florida. In 1961, Florida Senator and Committee Chairman Charley Johns shifted the focus from civil rights activists to Communist sympathizers and homosexual teachers and students at state universities. During its existence, the Committee was successful in firing or expelling more than 200 suspected gay and lesbian students and teachers throughout Florida.
    Through archival footage and photos, and interviews with former students Rev. Ruth Jensen-Forbell and Chuck Woods, and retired police officer John Tileston, Jr., the documentary highlights the scare tactics used by the Johns Committee in its attempt to root out homosexuality and Communism on state campuses. Chuck Woods - who had been interrogated by John Tileston, Jr. as a student at the time - reunites with him publicly for the first time in 50 years to discuss what happened during that dark period in the state's history.

  • 3:00 am
    To The Contrary with Bonnie Erbe [#2634] The unconventional Manal Omar is this week's Women Thought Leader. Focusing on women's rights, humanitarian aid, and peace-building for more than 15 years, Omar continues her interfaith work and empowerment of women in Muslim communities. One focus - Muslim women and sexuality.
    FROM THIS WEEK'S SHOW: "What hasn't happened really is the conversation on sexuality, especially from a sex positive lens. We've had great organizations tackling domestic violence, tackling sexual abuse in the mosque. ..... but that sex positive conversation, which I argue is an essential part of Islam because Islam talks about how you connect with the divine through all your senses, is still a missing gap."
    BEYOND THE BATTLE: "I honor all those who are at the front lines fighting for women's rights.... But, it's time for us to unplug from the war machine and from the conflict machine and to really talk about the power of women from a place of joy and I know that's a hard sell in this day and age, but someone has to ring that bell."

    Washington Week [#5717] The battle over the identity of the Republican Party intensified this week as another establishment senator made an impassioned plea to say "enough" to President Trump.
    Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., announced he will not seek reelection and will no longer be "complicit or silent" about the president's "unacceptable" behavior.
    Populist leaders in the Republican Party, including former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, cheered Flake's departure as well as the announced retirements of Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee and seven Republicans in the House.
    The GOP existential crisis comes at the same time party leaders are trying to piece together support for a major overhaul of the tax system.
    The Republican framework would cut taxes by $1.5 trillion over the next decade and lower the number of tax brackets from seven to three. The long-promised tax plan is considered essential by Congressional Republicans hoping to build momentum ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.
    Robert Costa will discuss the battle inside the Republican Party and how it affects the tax plan with:
    Peter Baker of The New York Times
    Ed O'Keefe of The Washington Post
    Nancy Cordes of CBS News
    Julie Pace of the Associated Press
