Last in a three-part series in which acclaimed documentary filmmakers present ten pivotal moments in American history and their often unforeseen repercussions.

Elvis Presley's appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show on Sept. 9, 1956, signified a whole new culture that involved the emergence of television, teenage independence, sexuality, race relations, and a new form of music. Freedom Summer of 1964 focused national attention on Mississippi when three civil rights workers (two white and one black) were murdered by the Ku Klux Klan on June 21, 1964, leading eventually to the passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act

From the ashes captures Americans in communities across the country as they wrestle with the legacy of the coal industry and what its future should be under the Trump administration. From Appalachia to the West's Powder River Basin, the film goes beyond the rhetoric of the "war on coal" to present compelling and often heartbreaking stories about what's at stake for our economy, health and climate. The film invites audiences to learn more about an industry on the edge and what it means for their lives

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wynton Marsalis and John Besh are both natives of New Orleans, the birthplace of jazz and Creole cooking. Marsalis has nine Grammy Awards, and is the first jazz musician to receive the Pulitzer Prize. He is the Artistic Director of Jazz at the Lincoln Centre in New York. He got his first trumpet at six, and by 14, had made his debut with the New Orleans Philharmonic. A 19, he had signed a recording contract. He has recorded 60 albums. An educator, composer, author, and performer, Marsalis's mission for Jazz at Lincoln Center has resulted in the non-profit organisation becoming the world's largest producer of jazz performance and education events. Inspired by Louisiana's rich culinary traditions, John Besh was awarded Food and Wine's 'Top 10 Best New Chefs in America', and the James Beard Award for 'Best Chef of the Southeast.' Besh learned at an early age the essentials of his native Louisiana's rich culinary traditions. He has set the benchmark for fine dining in New Orleans - with the four successful restaurants - Restaurant August, Besh Steak, Luke and La Provence. His appreciation for local ingredients and local cuisine has only increased since Hurricane Katrina as he considers these essential to the survival of the people and cultural heritage of New Orleans. Showing the spirit of New Orleans in the wake of a disaster, Restaurant August was one of the first restaurants to open. Through his Jazz at the Lincoln Center, Marsalis raised $3 million for musicians and cultural organisations affected by the hurricane, and Besh has been actively involved in efforts locally and nationally to raise funds for hurricane victims, and helped rebuild Willie Mae's - a New Orleans institution destroyed by Katrina
