Gordon Parks : segregation story by Gordon Parks( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 163 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

Ivica Puljic, a Sarajevo journalist, and Tony Borden, editor of the Balkan War Report, also comment on life in a time of war. The late Bosnian director Mirza Idrizovic explains his opinion on the strange environment that surrounds him; also the Serb soldier Borislav Herak tells of being sentenced to death by firing squad after confessing to war crimes. Then we hear from French filmmaker Francois Lunel as he talks of survival. The late political activist Susan Sontag and Bosnian poet Abdulah Sidran voice their thoughts and opinions. Pulitzer Prize winner and NY Times' foreign correspondent John Burns ends this unique 'inside-out' coverage of the war by describing it as 'part news, part horror movie.'

Bosnia and Serbia, the roots of ethnic cleansing( Visual )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Slobodan Milosevic became Serbia's leader in 1987, his form of 'nationalism' spread, creating conflict in Bosnia, which had become independent in 1992; however, by 1995 the euphemism for genocide, called 'Ethnic Cleansing, ' had buried deep roots there by Serbian troops in what had become the Bosnian War. Part One of this historic two-part program includes an exclusive interview with reporter Jovan Dulovic, who chronicled the activities of one of many Serbian paramilitary units operating in Bosnia, the Yellow Wasps, who took part in the Zvornik killings; also we hear from refugees who recount stories of rape, torture and massacre; plus we meet the late Warren Zimmerman, who served as the last U.S. Ambassador to the former Yugoslavia and was the author of Origins of a Catastrophe: Yugoslavia and Its Destroyers; here he offers his views on Milosevic and the intense situation in these two Baltic nations

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

Kosovo and Tajikistan( Visual )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Assembly of Kosovo declared its country's independence as a Republic in February of 2008; however, Serbia continues to claim sovereignty over Kosovo, which keeps this Balkan country a potential hot spot for conflict. As Chapter One of this historical documentary points out, this dispute dates back over 600 years to the Battle of Kosovo, when Kosovo was lost to Turkish invaders, yet Serbians see the battle as a symbol of patriotism. The former president of Serbia, Slobodan Milosevic, used the anniversary of this important event to arouse nationalism against Kosovo and to accuse its Albanian majority of genocide against the Serbian minority, which eventually led to the Kosovo War, a conflict that did not end until June 1999. Chapter Two focuses on Tajikistan, strategically located north of Afghanistan, where from 1992 to 1997, the country was torn apart by a devastating civil war, killing an estimated 50,000 people. Here we get perspectives of this Central Asian country from Barnett R. Rubin, formerly the Director of the Ctr. for the Study of Central Asia at Columbia University, and today is a Senior Fellow at NYU's Ctr. on Intl. Cooperation and the author of The Fragmentation of Afghanistan; also from Shahrbanou Tadjbakhsh, formerly at the School of IPA at Columbia University, and today is the Director of the CERI Program for Peace and Human Security at L'Institut d' Etudes Politiques in Paris
UN( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program offers an analysis of plans for a United Nations' War Crimes Tribunal to deal with atrocities committed in the former Yugoslavia; those modern-day countries include Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Serbia and Montenegro, and Slovenia. The conflicts during the 1990s were many and, as you can imagine, prosecuting war crimes can be a long and complex process. Charlayne Hunter-Gault, Arey Neier of Human Rights Watch and Feryal Gharahi of Equality Now, a women's group that supported rape victims in Bosnia. Looking back, we learn how in the early years only a tiny fraction of funds needed to convene a War Crimes Tribunal had been allocated and only one person was working full time at on-site investigations. Today, however, the International Criminal Tribunal has indicted over 160 individuals
