On June 2, 1958, Richard Loving and his fiancee Mildred Jeter traveled from Caroline County, VA, to Washington, D.C. to be married. Later, the newlyweds were arrested, tried and convicted of the felony crime of miscegenation. Two young ACLU lawyers took on the Lovings case, fully aware of the challenges posed. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled unanimously in their favor on June 12, 1967 and resulted in sixteen states being ordered to overturn their bans on interracial marriage

Althea Gibson emerged as a most unlikely queen of the highly segregated tennis world of the 1950s.

Worms at work: This film is a celebration of the redworm, a slimy creature who is slowly eating away at our tremendous waste problem. Worm composting is gaining ground, especially in Northern California, where excellent examples of the closed circuit wate reduction method can be found in schools, office buildings, and on larger scale farms. A redworm (which is usually seen as nothing more than fish bait) can eat up to half its weight each day in biodegradable waste and, as a result, it produces a nutrient rich soil enhancer with a myriad of uses. Worms at work features worms and the people who feed them in an effort to educate both children and adults, whil reforming popular opinion about the lowly worm
