This look at civilian sailors who served in the U.S. merchant marine during World War II is informative, entertaining, and at times deeply moving. The men aboard the Liberty Ships, the famed cargo vessels that were manufactured at an astounding pace to keep America's troops and its allies supplied during the war, faced long ocean voyages made impossibly dangerous by the constant threat of being torpedoed by a Japanese sub or a German U-boat. Veterans of the merchant marine discuss their ordeals in interviews filmed aboard the Jeremiah O'Brien, the last surviving unaltered Liberty Ship, and their reminiscences, combined with well-chosen archival footage, range from humorous to heartbreaking. It's shocking to learn that American conservatives of the day denounced the civilian sailors as "cowards" and "bums," and the issue of how the men of the merchant marine were shabbily treated by Amer...

The great abolitionist Frederick Douglass comes back to life in this acclaimed theatrical performance featuring Fred Morsell, as he dramatically re-creates Douglass's famous speech on slavery and human rights. With an eloquence and intelligence rarely matched, Frederick Douglass became a giant in the struggle against racial injustice. He called upon all Americans of every color to work to fulfill the vision of a just society that was proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. This program was filmed at the Metropolitan A.M.E. Church in Washington, D.C., where Douglass delivered his celebrated last speech, The Lesson of the Hour, over a century ago.

The Fabulous Four chronicles the competition of four great champions: Sugar Ray Leonard, Roberto Duran, Thomas Hearns, and Marvin Hagler. This video is a must for any sports fan, depicting some of the greatest fights of this decade-long struggle: Duran's "hands of stone" pounding Leonard for the welterweight crown in Montreal, the famous "Alley Fight" between Thomas "the Hit Man" Hearns and Marvelous Marvin Hagler, and Leonard's amazing comebacks from retirement to recapture titles from his three opponents. While many of these bouts require no introduction, the narration expertly introduces each fight for the uninitiated. A drawback of this video is the exclusion of the celebrated rematch between Leonard and Duran in which the latter was pummeled into crying "No mas, no mas" after enduring the Sugarman's viscious combinations. However, there is still plenty of bone-crunching action. A n...

It was 1871, and the young singers - all but two of them former slaves - were performing before far-off audiences to save their struggling new school. The Jubilee Singers' first concert, in Oberlin, Ohio, raised hopes but little else. Still, they refused to quit, and as word of their talent spread along the route of the old Underground Railway, both crowds and collections grew. The youths from Nashville, Tennessee, made history by saving Fisk University, introducing the world to the power of spirituals, and challenging racial stereotypes. See - and hear - this profound and moving story of students who battled prejudice and oppression to sing their way into a nation's heart....
