This story begins on the steps on the Lincoln Memorial in August 1963 when a 34-year-old preacher galvanized millions with his dream for an America free of racism. It comes to a bloody end almost five years later on a motel balcony in Memphis, Tennessee. In the years since those events unfolded, the man at the center, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., has become a mythic figure, a minister whose oratory is etched into the minds of millions of Americans, a civil rights activist whose words and image are more hotly contested, negotiated and sold than almost anyone else's in American history

Boogie Man : The Lee Atwater Story( Visual )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through interviews, tells the story of Lee Atwater, the blues-playing rogue whose rambunctious rise from the South to Chairman of the GOP made him a household name. Without Atwater, neither Ronald Reagan or George H.W. Bush might have been elected. Atwater mentored Karl Rove and George W. Bush while making the GOP a Southern party, expertly advancing the culture wars, transforming the way the American media covers elections, and becoming seen as the godfather of modern negative campaigning. Despite his friendships with legendary American R & B artists James Brown, Chuck Jackson (interviewed in the film) and BB King, Atwater was accused of racially inflammatory tactics. With inside analysis from elite Republican leaders and important journalists, and compelling, never-before-seen archival footage of Atwater and both Presidents Bush, this documentary is a re-examination of the last 40 years of American history. --From the film's website

Africans in America : America's journey through slavery( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A four-part series portraying the struggles of the African people in America, from their arrival in the 1600s to the last days before the Civil War. The first episode, Terrible transformation, examines the origins of one of the largest forced human migrations in recorded history. After the arrival of the first Africans in Virginia in 1619, the British colonies laid the groundwork for a system of racial slavery which generated profits that ensured the colonies' growth and survival. In the second episode, Revolution, while the American colonies challenge Britain for independence, American slavery is challenged from within as men and women fight to define what America will be. When the War of Independence is won, black people, both enslaved and free, seize on the language of freedom even while the new nation's Constitution codifies slavery and oppression as a national way of life. In the third episode, Brotherly love, during the first 50 years of the new nation, freedmen and fugitive slaves in Philadelphia push the country to live up to the promises made in its Constitution. But with the invention of the cotton gin, slavery expands into America's western frontier, and a revolution in Haiti inspires slave rebellions throughout the southern United States. In the fourth and final episode, as the nation expands westward slavery becomes the most divisive issue in American life. Abolitionists struggle to bring the institution down and the nation is tested as never before. When tensions over slavery erupt into violence, Americans are forced to consider how long the country can continue as a democracy built on the profits of bondage
