Color-blind fighting racism in schools by Catherine Cookson( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As school populations become more and more diverse, racial intolerance is shoving its way to prominence. In this provocative program, five students from a variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds speak with candor about racial harassment at their high school in an effort to encourage teenagers to examine their own attitudes and behaviors. The greatest danger of racism is that it will go unaddressed-until it becomes headline news. This video, ideal as a discussion-starter both in classrooms and at workshops, helps to ensure that this will not be the case

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As controversy swirls around the issue of same-sex marriage, gay and lesbian couples in North America and abroad are speaking out for the right to marry. Filmed in British Columbia after the legalization of same-sex unions, this program introduces the victorious litigants, who share their views on marriage, religious and political opposition, child adoption, and, most of all, love. Interviews with their families, the lawyer who represented them, and gay rights activist Jane Rule-who takes issue with the institution of marriage-round out the program. (51 minutes)
Brother 2 brother positive personal change for at-risk youths( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many at-risk youths see negative lifestyles such as hustling drugs as the only real alternatives open to them.

Overall, the participants come away with a stronger sense of themselves, a new bond of brotherhood as a group, and a feeling of connection with elders who have faced similar circumstances and succeeded in turning their lives around
XS stress teens take control( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Depression, anxiety, and an overwhelming schedule may be hallmarks of adulthood, but many young people are also familiar with them. This program gathers together the voices of teenagers as they reflect on personal frustrations and challenges. In an expressive flow of words, images, and music, three high school students - an ambitious male cheerleader raised by a single mother, a pierced and tatooed recovering cutter, and a dyslexic student wrestling with her anger at the school system - articulate fascinating perspectives, along with a chorus of others. The result is an excellent catalyst for class discussions about peer pressure, authority and the future
Living in the hyphen cultural identity in a multiethnic society( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Canada, diversity is represented as "an ethnicity + a hyphen + Canadian." But what if you are one of the many people who don't fit into an obvious category? What if your background is a hybrid of ancestries and you live "in the hyphen"--Somewhere in between, where cultural identities overlap? This program examines the experiences of poet Fred Wah and six other Canadians with one parent from a European background and one from a visible minority. As globalization increasingly blurs borders of all kinds, Living in the Hyphen offers a provocative glimpse of a future in which hyphens give way to a celebration of mixed heritages. (45 minutes)
