Two Societies 1965-1968 [electronic resource]

Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) come north to help Chicago's civil rights leaders in their nonviolent struggle against segregated housing. Their efforts pit them against Chicago's powerful mayor, Richard Daley. When a series of marches through all-white neighborhoods draws violence, King and Daley negotiate with mixed results. In Detroit, a police raid in a black neighborhood sparks an urban uprising that lasts five days, leaving 43 people dead. The Kerner Commission finds that America is becoming "two societies, one black, one white, separate and unequal." President Lyndon Johnson, who appointed the commission, ignores the report.

The Heart Broken in Half [electronic resource]

Loading...
Challenging stereotypes, this documentary gives voice to the street youths and reveals their underground culture. Here is an intricate web of symbols and passions, territory and brotherhood, honor and, all to often, death. Images of street bravado are counterpointed with scenes inside laundromats where gang members are folding clothes and playing with babies. The violent death and funeral of a Guatemalan street youth stir up the deepest feelings and most haunting questions about both the vulnerability and the heroic ethic of gang life.
