Gordon Parks : segregation story by Gordon Parks( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In September 1956, Life magazine published a photo-essay by Gordon Parks entitled "The Restraints: Open and Hidden," which documented the everyday activities and rituals of one extended African American family living in the rural South under Jim Crow segregation. One of the most powerful photographs depicts Joanne Thornton Wilson and her niece, Shirley Anne Kirksey, standing in front of a theater in Mobile, Alabama, an image which became a forceful "weapon of choice," as Parks would say, in the struggle against racism and segregation. While 26 photographs were eventually published in Life and some were exhibited in his lifetime, the bulk of Parks' assignment was thought to be lost. In 2011, five years after Parks' death, The Gordon Parks Foundation discovered more than 70 color transparencies at the bottom of an old storage bin marked "Segregation Series" that are now published for the first time in Segregation Story

Country of my skull : guilt, sorrow, and the limits of forgiveness in the new South Africa by Antjie Krog( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than two years Antjie Krog worked in acute engagement with the many voices that arose in and around South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission. From the legislative genesis of the Commission, through the testimonies of victims of abuse and violence, and the activities of apartheid's operatives, the appearance of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, former President PW Botha's courthouse press conference, the Commission's meeting with the media in Robben Island early in 1998 - this award-winning poet leads us on an extraordinary odyssey. "Country of my skull" captures the complexity of the Truth Commission's work in a uniquely personal narrative which is harrowing, illuminating and provocative. Before the Commission. They never wept, the men of my race. None more parted than us. First hearings. Bereaved and dumb, the high southern air succumbs. The narrative of betrayal has to be reinvented every time. The sound of the second narrative. The wet bag and other phantoms. Two women: let us hear it in another language. Guilt is on the move with all her mantles. Politics. The political page curls over itself. Reconciliation: the leser of two evils. Amnesty: in transit with the ghosts. The political tongue at anchor. Reactions. Blood rains in every latitude. Letters on the acoustics of scars. It gets to all of us - from Tutu to Mamasela. Truth is a women. Then burst the mighty heart. Unwinding. The shepherd and the landscape of my bones. A tragedy of errors. Mother faces the nation. Beloved country of grief and grace

Torture rehabilitation( Visual )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the great tragedies of war is that its deleterious effects continue long after the final battles have been fought. The U.S. currently serves as refuge for over 400,000 victims of torture from as many as 112 countries that continue the practice of torturing prisoners of war. Many of the countless victims of torture have only recently received help in repairing their lives. Also the Women's Media Center of Cambodia reported last year that there were over eight million uncleared anti-personnel mines in their country, and over 100 million uncleared mines worldwide. Human rights activists have stepped up their efforts to deal with these tragedies on both an individual and global scale. Over 100 torture-rehabilitation centers have been opened in various countries; and in Cambodia, national media groups as well as international organizations have sponsored treatment programs for landmine victims. Activists urgently call for international bans on torture and on the production and deployment of landmines. In this program, viewers visit two torture rehabilitation centers; also they witness the continuing horrific effects of landmines on innocent Cambodians. The program ends with a discussion of the value of computers and the Internet in facilitating a truly global human rights movement
Northern Ireland and human rights( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the campaign of violence in Northern Ireland between Nationalists, the Catholic minority, and the Unionists, predominantly Protestants, was never declared a civil war, it was popularly know as "The Troubles"; sadly, this bitter conflict claimed over 3,000 lives over 25 years, which ended in 1998 with the signing of the Belfast Agreement, also called "the Good Friday Agreement" or the G.F.A. This historical documentary introduces viewers to a significant number of individuals who were involved in this battle for Civil Rights. Laura Flanders reports on the discord; also we meet Marie Mulholland, a community organizer; Gerry Campbell, a Ford Motor Company employee; John Keanie, the Derry town clerk; Eamonn McCann, a Civil Rights activists; Andrew Tyndall, a media analyst, who, today, is editor of the Tyndall Report; also Bernadette Devlin McAliskey, the youngest woman ever elected to the British parliament. She wrote the book, The Price of My Soul, which publicized discrimination against Roman Catholics in her country. Worth noting is, in 2003, she was barred from entering the United States and deported by the State Department, which declared her "a serious threat to the security of the U.S."
