Moyers & Company Facing Evil with Maya Angelou In this second of two programs celebrating the life and work of the late Maya Angelou, Bill Moyers revisits a 1988 documentary in which he and Angelou attended a conference on "Facing Evil," held in the Hill Country of central Texas. Evil was a topic about which Angelou, the victim of childhood rape and virulent racism, had a lot to say. Rape caused her to retreat into silence for five years. she said, and was "a dire kind of evil, because rape on the body of a young person more often than not introduces cynicism, and there is nothing quite so tragic as a young cynic, because it means the person has gone from knowing nothing to believing nothing. In my case I was saved in that muteness, you see, in the sordida, I was saved. And I was able to draw from human thought, human disappointments and triumphs, enough to triumph myself." She recites the lyrics of a song she wrote for Roberta Flack about Angelou's crippled Uncle Willie, who made sure she and others knew their lessons and "left for our generation and generations to come a legacy so rich. " She reads from the poetry of African-American poet Paul Laurence Dunbar as well her own: "There in those pleated faces/I see the auction block/The chains and slavery's coffles/The whip and lash and stock./My fathers speak in voices/That shred my fact and sound/They say, but, sugar, it was our submission/that made your world go round.'' She tells the conference, "We need the courage to create ourselves daily, to be bodacious enough to create ourselves daily -- as Christians, as Jews, as Muslims, as thinking, caring, laughing, loving human beings," she says. I think that the courage to confront evil and turn it by dint of will into something applicable to the development of our evolution, individually and collectively, is exciting, honorable."

Schools That Change Communities From economically challenged rural areas to crime-ridden urban neighborhoods, SCHOOLS THAT CHANGE COMMUNITIES profiles a diverse range of K-12 public schools in five states — Massachusetts, Maryland, South Dakota, Oregon and California — that are tackling educational reform at the local level. Principals, teachers, students, residents and others discuss place- and community-based education, an interdisciplinary approach which emphasizes hands-on, curiosity-based investigation using the surrounding community and neighborhoods as "living" classrooms. Proponents say this creates not only a different type of learning environment, but a different kind of student. In confronting and solving real-world issues in their own hometowns, the students develop a sense of civic responsibility and pride. The community feels the impact too, whether students are delivering baked goods to neighbors, planting vegetables in a community garden, testing drinking water and air quality, helping restore natural habitats, shining a light on important social or environmental problems, or simply encouraging others to spend money locally.

Instruments of Change History credits the inception of the Civil Rights movement to Montgomery, Alabama in the mid-1950s. However here in Miami as early as 1951, there existed a Fine Arts Conservatory dedicated to bringing music, dance and art to young black and white students in an integrated environment. This little known conservatory founded by longtime Miami resident Ruth Greenfield, would challenge segregation and change the lives of many of those who attended the school. Some like classical, clarinet lover Fredrick Morley, would institute the programs he participated in at the Conservatory as the principal of a highly acclaimed elementary school. Others would start their own conservatories or theater companies or become life-long advocates for the arts. It's exactly what Greenfield had in mind when she conceived the Conservatory as a place where those of any color can come together, be taught by first rate teachers and be instilled with a sense of dignity and confidence so they can strive to reach their full potential. As the Conservatory wound down in the late 70s, it overlapped another Greenfield project known as the Lunchtime Lively Arts Series. Initiated in 1972 to help revitalize a downtown in decline, it was hosted by Miami Dade College and brought a variety of free entertainment every Wednesday at noon to various downtown venues. The series which spanned almost twenty years, reignited interest in the arts and was the spark that led to Miami's urban renewal that is still taking place today. Chronicling these events is an engaging one hour documentary titled, "Instruments of Change." The film shows the power the performing arts has in bringing a community together and features intimate interviews, emotional footage and photographs along with archival and current day performances from those who participated in these nearly forgotten endeavors. The film was commissioned by longtime admirers of Ruth Greenfield to honor her dedication for making Miami a better place to live.

Snapshot: a love story interrupted by invasion A true story of a daughter's journey through a landscape of years, memories and realities. Her journey initiated by the question "What do I know about war?" The answers are lying in an album of faded photos of her absent father, who left for Vietnam before she was born. She creates a world in which her father has a leading role. Snapshots from the album projected larger than life on a black wall bring the beautiful and ghostly characters to life. R&B tracks take us back to a high school dance floor in the 1960s in Appalachia where a White girl and Black boy kiss for the first time. The sound of a gunshot brings us back to the rice fields of Vietnam and a soldier's decision to kill or die. Carrying her past and the pain of her father's absence, a moment of dance positions her in the quest to find him.Her growing insights reveal how the forces of history, race and war affected herself and her family, and the torn fragments of her life begin to re-connect. SNAPSHOT honors her father and other Vietnam Veterans who have been lost under the avalanche of history. This play is a daring look at the truth of our past and an inspiring example of the need for us to reconcile our history --- one life at time.

We watch as they argued, fought, and negotiated their way to a settlement, a balanced budget that both sides agreed to.

Hayloft Gang: The Story of the National Barn Dance; The One of the most popular and long-running programs on radio was the "National Barn Dance." Debuting in 1924, the show blended music, comedy and down-home theatrical skits. Preceding the success of the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville by nearly two decades, "National Barn Dance" was the flagship, setting the standard for hundreds of radio barn dances across the country. The program served two audiences — the rural farm audiences and city listeners who had come from these communities and wanted to remember the "good old days." THE HAYLOFT GANG: THE STORY OF THE NATIONAL BARN DANCE tells the story of a changing America though the lens of one of early radio's most popular and influential programs — a story never before documented on television. From the Great Migration of the 1920s to the Depression through the hardships of World War II, the Chicago-based WLS variety show unified rural Americans with its nostalgic brand of traditional folk music and country humor, and helped define an identity for a struggling generation.

Life is a Banquet: The Rosaland Russell Story The star of Auntie Mame, His Girl Friday, Gypsy, and scores of other memorable films and Broadway shows, Rosalind Russell came into her own during Hollywood's Golden Era and was paired with many of the luminaries of that time, including Joan Crawford, Cary Grant, and Kirk Douglas. Long an advocate for those with disabilities, late in life this unique and pioneering talent was struck with severe rheumatoid arthritis, which derailed her career. Thereafter, Russell championed the needs of millions also suffering from the disease. Whether considered for her sophisticated comedy roles or dignity under duress, her humanity shines through. Narrated by Kathleen Turner, this insightful and warm profile comes on the occasion of the approach of the 75th anniversary of her breakthrough role as Sylvia Fowler in The Women (1939) and the 55th anniversary of her most famous role as Mame Dennis in Auntie Mame (1958).

Pedro Ruiz: Coming Home In January 2011, acclaimed New York City choreographer Pedro Ruiz returned to his native Cuba for an unprecedented collaboration: Ruiz worked with Cuba's premiere modern dance troupe, Danza Contemporanea de Cuba, to create a dance about Cuba. The project, allowed by special permission from both the U.S. and Cuban governments, led to Horizons, a spectacular half hour dance which premiered at Havana's Mella Theater on January 28 and had a two week run at the Joyce Theater in New York City in May. A WNET crew traveled with Ruiz to Havana (also with the permission of both the U.S. and Cuban governments) to document this cultural exchange. With our cameras rolling, we followed Pedro and the dancers though the process of creating an exquisite, innovative and deeply personal modern dance. We got to know some of Cuba's best young dancers — as artists and as human beings. We joined Pedro on a trip to his hometown, Santa Clara, his first visit there since his family left Cuba 30 years ago. There, we filmed his exuberant reunions with his godfather, who still lives in the house where Pedro was born, and his childhood best friend.When the dancers came to New York City, for their first ever trip to the United States, our cameras were rolling again to capture their feelings about a country most thought they would never have the chance to see. Pedro Ruiz: Coming Home is an hour-long documentary and performance film, telling the story of Pedro's return to Cuba and showing viewers some of the most innovative, breathtaking modern dance we have ever seen. We hope the film makes you look at dance, and at Cuba in a new way. And we hope it shows the power of art to transform lives and cross divides.
