Unforgivable Blackness Part 1 [electronic resource]: The Rise and Fall of Jack Johnson - a Film Directed by Ken Burns

This first part of the film follows Jack Johnson's remarkable journey from his humble beginnings in Galveston, Texas, to his entry into the world of professional boxing, where, in turn-of-the-century Jim Crow America, the heavyweight championship was an exclusively "white title." In 1908 Johnson became the first African-American to earn the title Heavyweight Champion of the World. On July 4, 1910, ex-champion Jim Jeffries, the new "Great White Hope," challenged the champion. The fight was billed as the Battle of the Century. Despite a hostile crowd and a steady stream of racial epithets hurled from Jeffries's corner, Johnson won an easy victory, provoking race riots all around the country.

Unforgivable Blackness Part 2 [electronic resource]: The Rise and Fall of Jack Johnson - a Film Directed by Ken Burns

By the end of 1910, as the second part of this film begins, Jack Johnson was the most famous - and the most notorious - African-American on earth. But when no one was able to beat the champion in the ring, the U.S. government set out to destroy him in the courts. Unfairly charged with violating the Mann Act, Johnson was convicted and sentenced to jail. Skipping bail, he fled to Europe, where he remained a fugitive for many years. Determined to live his life regardless of the confines imposed by his color, Jack Johnson emerged as a central figure in America's ongoing struggle to deal with the question of race.

The American Dream

Written and produced by John Maggio and narrated by Academy Award-nominated actor Stanley Tucci, “The Italian Americans” explores the evolution of the Italian community, from “outsiders” in the late nineteenth viewed with suspicion and mistrust to some of the most prominent leaders of business, politics and the arts today. This film begins in postwar America, when Italian Americans moved to the suburbs and entered the middle-class. But even as crooners such as Frank Sinatra defined cool, they were haunted by accusations of Mafia ties reinforced in the media by Mario Puzo’s “The Godfather.” Over the next decades, Governor Mario Cuomo achieved success; Antonin Scalia became the first Italian American on the Supreme Court, and Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi was elected Speaker of the House [...]

Intent on shaking up the ultimate "sacred cow" for Jews, Israeli director Yoav Shamir embarks on a provocative—and at times irreverent—quest to answer the question, “What is anti-Semitism today?” Does it remain a dangerous and immediate threat? Or is it a scare tactic used by right-wing Zionists to discredit their critics? Speaking with an array of people from across the political spectrum (including the head of the Anti-Defamation League and its fiercest critic, author Norman Finkelstein) and traveling to places like Auschwitz (alongside Israeli school kids) and Brooklyn (to explore reports of violence against Jews), Shamir discovers the realities of anti-Semitism today. His findings are shocking, enlightening and—surprisingly—often wryly funny.
