2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After 1968, African Americans set out to build a bright future on the foundation of the civil rights movement's victories, but a growing class disparity threatened to split the black community. As African Americans won political office across the country and the black middle class made progress, larger economic and political forces isolated the black urban poor. When Barack Obama was elected president in 2008, many hoped that America had finally transcended racism. By the time of his second victory, however, it was clear that many issues, including true racial equality, remain to be resolved. How will African Americans help redefine the United States in the years to come?

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the second episode, Facing Our Fears, we look at emotions that are commonly regarded as obstacles to happiness such as anger, fear, anxiety, and despair. Our brains are designed for survival, and the negative emotions they create are vital to that mission. But those negative emotions can spiral out of control with debilitating effects. We meet a woman whose inability to control her temper is jeopardizing her relationships, a college student whose fear of flying is limiting her life and a teenager who is struggling to overcome clinical depression on the eve of attending college. We also meet veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder and follow their journeys to find effective treatment. Across the episode, science reminds us that we are of two minds a rational brain that's relatively new and an emotional brain that's older than time. Sometimes emotion overwhelms reason, sometimes reason outwits emotion, and it is the endless struggle that makes our lives so painful, so joyous and so interesting

Nixon by Nixon : in his own words( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From 1971-73, Richard Nixon secretly recorded his private conversations in the White House. When the existence of the tapes was exposed during the Watergate scandal, Nixon refused to allow their release, explaining they contained "blunt and candid remarks on many different subjects" that could sully the presidency forever. Only certain conversations pertaining to Watergate ended up being heard at the time, but after Nixon's death in 1994, the government began releasing the tapes. In 2010, hundreds more hours of recordings were released by the Nixon Library. Using excerpts from the tapes, original press reports, and Nixon's reflections a decade after the tapes were exposed, Nixon By Nixon: In His Own Words chronicles Nixon's conversations about historic events including the war in Vietnam, the Pentagon Papers leak, his Supreme Court appointments, and more. The tapes expose many of the "blunt and candid" statements made by the President about women, people of color, Jews, and, perhaps his favorite target, the media

'The Age of Slavery' illustrates how black lives changed dramatically in the aftermath of the American Revolution. For free black people, these years were a time of opportunity, but for most African Americans, the era represented a new nadir.

From individual acts to mass rebellions, African Americans demonstrated their determination to undermine and ultimately eradicate slavery

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Into the Fire' examines the most tumultuous and consequential period in African-American history: the Civil War and the end of slavery, and Reconstruction's thrilling but brief 'moment in the sun.' From the beginning, African Americans were agents of their liberation - by fleeing the plantations and taking up arms to serve in the United States Colored Troops. After Emancipation, African Americans sought to realize the promise of freedom - rebuilding families shattered by slavery; demanding economic, political and civil rights; even winning elected office - but a few years later, an intransigent South mounted a swift and vicious campaign of terror to restore white supremacy and roll back African-American rights. Yet the achievements of Reconstruction remained in the collective memory of the African-American community

'The Black Atlantic' explores the global experiences that created the African-American people. Beginning a century before the first documented '20-and-odd' slaves who arrived at Jamestown, Virginia, the episode portrays the earliest Africans, slave and free, who arrived on these shores. The transatlantic slave trade soon became a vast empire connecting three continents. Through stories of individuals caught in its web, the episode traces the emergence of plantation slavery in the American South and examines what the late 18th-century era of revolutions - American, French and Haitian - would mean for African Americans and slavery in America
