Las Cajas Españolas: The Spanish Crates

Loading...
Documents the heroic efforts to safeguard Spain's artistic heritage during the Spanish Civil War. The republican government established the Junta de Defensa del Tesoro Artistica during the early days of social upheaval in 1936, later succeeded by an international committee.

Moyers & Company [electronic resource]: Tom Morello-a Troubadour for Justice

The troubadours of troubling times-Guthrie, Seeger, Baez, and Dylan among them-have become famous for their dedication both to music and the quest for social justice. Now we can add a name to the ranks of those who lift their voices for equality and human rights: Tom Morello. Morello is the Harvard-educated guitarist who dabbled in politics, then chose music to make a difference with his bands Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave.

Human Rights in Asia [electronic resource]

This episode examines the historical record of human rights in China and Vietnam. "Moving the Mountain," a documentary directed by Michel Apted and produced by Trudie Styler, profiles former Chinese dissident Li Lu. As an economics major at Nanjing University, Li became politicized and took part in the student protests in Tiananmen Square in 1989. In an interview, Li discusses his life in exile in America and his success as an investment banker. Another documentary excerpted is "From Hollywood to Hanoi," about a Vietnamese-American's journey back to Vietnam. Filmmaker Tiana Alexandra wrestles with her own feelings about the war as she visits My Lai, the site of a massacre by American troops, and sees her film as an instrument of reconciliation between Vietnam and the U.S?

Nat Turner: A Troublesome Property

Loading...
Nat Turner's slave rebellion is a watershed event in America's long and troubled history of slavery and racial conflict. This program deftly weaves academic commentary with dramatizations to examine that violent confrontation and the multiple, conflicting ways its story has been told. The earliest source of Turner imagery, The Confessions of Nat Turner, was based on jail cell interviews by a white lawyer and was the first to raise the question that continued to be asked for the next two centuries: Was Nat Turner a brilliant religious leader or a deluded fanatic leading slaves to their doom? With Henry Louis Gates Jr., Vincent Harding, Alvin Poussaint, Ossie Davis, and others. Some content may be objectionable. (60 minutes) A streaming videorecording.
