[ABC News day one ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"This story provided our viewers with an extraordinary journey to a place most Americans never see -- an inner-city black ghetto, in this case, [South Central] Los Angeles. Following the riots there in 1992, we decided to see what life is like there, from the inside out. Our guide in this journey was a young man known on the street as 'Apollo.' He's a former gang member turned community activist. Day One provided Apollo and two other young men with Hi-8 cameras and asked them to tell us their own stories. They live in a part of [South Central] called the 'Jungle' and their extraordinary video portrait of life in the jungle was a story no 'outside' journalist could have captured. The story was written and narrated by Apollo, with the oversight of producer Robe Imbriano ..."--1993 Peabody Awards entry form excerpt. This program provides a view of life in South Central Los Angeles as seen by several of its residents. Apollo interviews several residents, family members, and friends to get their views on what life is like in the ghetto. He talks with drug dealers and junkies to find out why they sell or take drugs. Two rap musicians express their hopes that their music will provide them a way out of the ghetto. Apollo also talks with two young gang members, asking them what it would take to get them out of the gang and whether there every could be a lasting truce between rival gangs. During the filming of the program, Apollo is arrested on suspicion of torching his own car. He expresses his outrage at being arrested and believes a white person would have been treated much differently. Includes footage from a speech by President Clinton congratulating Apollo and others for negotiating a truce between the Crips and Bloods
A call to act Ledbetter v. Goodyear ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Tells the story of Lilly Ledbetter, a retired manager at a Goodyear Tire plant, and her fight for fair pay. Ledbetter's story began when she learned shortly before her retirement that her pay was just 60 percent of what men doing the same job made. She was determined to sue Goodyear under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, which governs employment discrimination in the workplace. A jury decided in her favor and initially awarded her more than $3 million. The case made its way to the Supreme Court, which ruled against her in a 5-4 decision. Hence, the educational value of this film is that it uses the Ledbetter case to illustrate that, in our system of government, the Supreme Court does not always have the last word about the law. That's because in Ledbetter it was interpreting a statute (Title VII), not the Constitution. This enabled Ledbetter to take her fight for pay equity to Congress. Combining footage with present-day interviews with Ledbetter, the documentary shows how she became an activist, testifying at congressional hearings and giving media interviews. The result is that Congress passed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, signed by President Obama in January 2009. It shows simply but powerfully how "ordinary" American citizens such as Ledbetter can bring about change.--From ABA Committee commentary
