In 1911, the first newsreels flickered in America's nickelodeons. In the mid-1960s, they vanished from movie theaters as nightly television newscasts came to dominate visual journalism. In between, newsreels grew into a unique 20th-century institution that informed and entertained whole generations. In this program, Bill Moyers conducts a tour of the cultural and political landscape so dramatically rendered by the American newsreel. Accompanied by a rich tapestry of archival clips, Moyers talks with the announcers, composers, and cameramen who still relish memories of jostling and hustling to catch the parade of history on film

The first program covers the period through 1930, during which the foundations for the civil rights movement were laid. The dawn of the new century was celebrated by the presence of prominent blacks in all fields, although inequities were still persistent. Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee join Bill Moyers to examine the various and sometimes conflicting paths that black leaders advocated. The second program observes that Supreme Court decisions often reflect American public opinion. This was true in 1886 when the Supreme Court ruled that states could enforce "separate but equal" laws, and it was true in 1954 with the reversing decision that segregation in public education was unconstitutional. Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee join Bill Moyers to examine the 58 years between these landmark decisions, when America was forced to dismantle institutionalized segregation
