    AfroPop: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange [#804] First Friday On the first Friday of every month, thousands of people gather in the streets of downtown Oakland. Rich and poor, young and old, black and white, they all meet here. As the event grows, it becomes symbolically attached to the city's larger cultural and economic renaissance. But after a teenager is murdered during the event, the future of First Fridays and the rebirth of Oakland itself is in peril. The film follows six characters at First Friday, just a month after the shooting, where they intersect. A councilwoman, entrepreneur, transgender teen, black resident, musician and two young professionals who come to First Fridays looking for different things. Councilwoman Lynette wants to bridge the divide in her district between the longer time residents and recent transplants who are part of this redevelopment..
    This film provides a multi-layered snapshot of a fascinating American city while exploring issues of redevelopment, gentrification and violence that many other urban centers face.

    Mr. Civil Rights: Thurgood Marshall and the NAACP This program incorporates rare archival film and extraordinary interviews to explore Marshall's life in the years leading up to the landmark Brown v. Board of Education ruling, including his upbringing in Baltimore, his education at Howard University Law School ("the West Point of the civil rights movement"), his status as a rising star within the NAACP, his skill as an orator and storyteller, his relationship with his mentor Charles H. Houston, and his high-profile segregation cases involving voting, transportation, housing, labor and the military. This compelling biography unfolds through interviews with Justice Elena Kagan, Justice John Paul Stevens, lawyer and civil-rights activist Vernon Jordan, Marshall biographers Rawn James, Juan Williams and Larry S. Gibson, and several law professors. duration 56:50   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    America Reframed [#406] Baddddd Sonia Sanchez For 80-year-old Sonia Sanchez, writing is both a personal and political act. She emerged as a seminal figure in the 1960s Black Arts Movement, raising her voice in the name of black culture, civil rights, women's liberation, and peace as a poet, playwright, teacher, activist and early champion of the spoken word. She is among the earliest poets to have incorporated urban black English into her poetry; she was one of the first activists to secure the inclusion of African American studies in university curricula. Deemed "a lion in literature's forest" by poet Maya Angelou and winner of major literary awards including the American Book Award, Sonia Sanchez is best known for 17 books of poetry that explore a wide range of global and humanist themes, particularly the struggles and triumphs of women and people of color. In BaddDDD Sonia Sanchez, Sanchez's life unfolds in a documentary rich with readings and jazz-accompanied performances of her work. With appearances by Questlove, Talib Kweli, Ursula Rucker, Amiri Baraka, Haki Madhubuti, Jessica Care Moore, Ruby Dee, Yasiin Bey, Ayana Mathis, Imani Uzuri and Bryonn Bain, the documentary examines Sanchez's contribution to the world of poetry, her singular place in the Black Arts Movement and her leadership role in African American culture over the last half century. duration 1:56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Well Read [#626] Sherman Alexie / You Don't Have to Say You Love Alexie shares raw, angry, funny, profane, tender memories of a childhood few can imagine-growing up dirt-poor on an Indian reservation, one of four children raised by alcoholic parents. Throughout, a portrait emerges of his mother as a beautiful, mercurial, abusive, intelligent, complicated woman. You Don't Have To Say You Love Me is a powerful account of a complicated relationship, an unflinching and unforgettable remembrance from the critically acclaimed, bestselling National Book Award winner. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Articulate with Jim Cotter [#205] Ruebin Margolin Loves Making Waves The kinetic sculptures of Ruebin Margolin are extraordinary mechanical attempts to evoke the natural world.

Chemi Rosado-Seijo: No Comply 180 - The art of skater and painter Chemi Rosado-Seijo is founded in community activism. He is an agent for change in places where creative expression may be low on the list of priorities for survival. Finding Sara Rahbar - Sara Rahbar has spent a lifetime looking for the antidote to her existential angst. It turns out that the work itself is the cure. duration 26:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Around The Corner with John McGivern [#109] Beloit Beloit really surprised us - and we're not easily surprised. This is a city with a great, paradoxical spirit. Polished and rustic, sophisticated and folksy, old and new, serious and whimsical. Highlights? Forward thinking companies like Universal AET and Acculynx housed in renovated spaces. The old Beckman Mill made to work like new again. Thousands of angels under the roof of an old church. And no kidding, some of the best food of the season! John literally ate his way through Beloit - and enjoyed every bite at Bushel & Peck's, Merrill and Houston's and the 615 Club. But it was the fun, hardworking people who made our time in Beloit a week to remember. Yep, the people... and the Ironworks! You have to see this reinvigorated area. The Ironworks is just really cool. And since we love cool, we love Beloit! duration 26:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    This American Land [#704] Farmland Runoff, Maintaining National Parks, Rafting Through A Monument Fertilizer nutrients from farmlands in the Midwest are carried downstream in the Mississippi Basin, causing the "dead zone" in the Gulf of Mexico where virtually no marine life can survive. We profile a farmer in southwestern Iowa who has made it his mission to develop his farm as an example to others, using no-till seeding, multi-crop and pasture rotation, minimal fertilizing, and runoff filtering to keep the nutrients in his soil and prevent runoff. The backlog of deferred maintenance in national parks is a growing problem that needs Congress to act: we see the need for urgent maintenance and repairs at the Grand Canyon, the National Mall, and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Historic Site in Atlanta. Rafting down the river through the Rio Grande Del Norte National Monument. duration 29:00   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
