    Georgia O'Keeffe: A Woman On Paper Artist Georgia O'Keeffe has been called the "Mother of American Modernism," well-known for her flowing, colorful works depicting flowers and plants, dramatic cityscapes and Southwestern landscapes. This documentary highlights the artist's career while focusing on the little-known story of O'Keeffe's time spent in Columbia, S.C. as an art instructor at Columbia College.
    While teaching at the college in the fall of 1915 and the spring of 1916, O'Keeffe found her voice with a series of innovative black and white abstract charcoal drawings that represented a radical break with tradition and led her art-and her career-in a new direction. Collectively titled "Specials, " the charcoal drawings made O'Keeffe one of the very first American artists to practice pure abstraction, and they would go on to define and establish her career as one of the country's leading artists.

    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)

    Triangle Fire: American Experience [#2307] On March 25th, 1911, a fire broke out in the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in New York's Greenwich Village. The blaze ripped through the congested loft; huge piles of trimmings fed the flames. Petrified workers desperately tried to make their way downstairs, but the factory owners kept the doors on the 9th floor locked and the woefully inadequate fire escape soon crumpled. Hundreds of horrified on-lookers arrived just in time to see young men and women jumping from the windows. By the time the fire had burned itself out, 146 people were dead. Less than two years earlier, the workers of the factory had been leaders in an industry-wide strike to protest dismal wages and dangerous working conditions. Despite unlikely support from some of the wealthiest women in the city, including Anne Morgan, most of the workers returned to the their shops without having their demands met. It took the tragedy of the fire and the ensuing public outrage to force government action. The landmark legislation that followed gave New Yorkers the most comprehensive workplace safety laws in the country. duration 56:46   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: none)
