Baton Rouge’s Troubled Waters - $25.00

This LPB documentary looks at life in South Baton Rouge from the late 1940's to the present. Segregationist laws often meant African Americans had separate and inferior accommodations at department stores, hospitals and doctors' offices. They had no access to many parks, pools, restaurants and hotels. Many were tolerant of the situation and only hoped and prayed for change. However, the people of South Baton Rouge were strong-willed and eventually - and deliberately - demanded change. This program reveals what happened when residents became weary after several young African Americans drowned in rivers, creeks and other water holes because segregation denied them access to City Park and its swimming pool. See how the community made strides in integrating City Hall, the local pools, public schools and the city bus system in Baton Rouge.

Atchafalaya Swamp Revisited - $25.00

Emmy Award winning journalist and filmmaker Bill Rodman details nature photographer CC Lockwood's return to America's largest swamp wilderness, thirty years after his acclaimed Atchafalaya Swamp book and National Geographic article. Surprisingly, Lockwood finds the Swamp's most interesting and threatened species has since vanished. The story Rodman weaves explores the degree to which the Atchafalaya Swamp has changed - naturally and culturally - since the great flood of 1927, while revealing one of America's last and most intriguing frontier communities. Atchafalaya Swamp Revisited (26:40) is a co-production of The Bill Rodman Production Shoppe (http://www.billrodman.com) and Louisiana Public Broadcasting. The program was funded by the Atchafalaya Trace Commission and Heritage Area and supported, in part, by funds from the Louisiana State Arts Council, the Louisiana Division of the Arts and by the Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge through the Decentralized Arts Funding Program.

An Enchantment of Butterflies - $25.00

Of all the things in nature that throughout history have captivated the minds, hearts and souls of people, perhaps the most powerful and most universal are butterflies. To gardeners and naturalists, butterflies are considered the most beautiful and popular representatives of the insect world. This program examines more than just science and modern culture. The magic of metamorphosis has served as a literary metaphor for thousands of years, as we discover in examples of native myths, readings and dream imagery. The symbolism of the butterfly is one that even young children understand.

American Utopia - $25.00

John Harriman envisioned a colony which offered such radical ideas as an 8-hour workday, equal education, health care, and food and shelter for all who were willing to put in an honest day's work. And while the history of utopias is usually one of naive idealism and failure, Harriman's concepts would later become standards in the American way of life. Where could such a group eventually settle and thrive? As improbable as it may seem, a small town in southwest Louisiana became their American Utopia. New Llano went on to become America's last and longest-lived socialist cooperative. This story of an American Utopia provides an example of American risk-taking, vision, grit and courage.

Ain’t A That Good News: The Fisk Jubilee Singers in Concert - $25.00

In 1871, George L. White, the treasurer of Fisk University, heard a choir of nine young Black people from the struggling college for children of freed slaves. They set out on an uncertain journey to raise funds for the struggling Fisk school in Nashville, Tennessee. This group travelled around the United States and throughout Europe performing Negro spirituals. To everyone's surprise, the singers were successful in their endeavors. These young people were the first to be known as the "Fisk University Jubilee Singers." For over 125 years the Jubilee Singers have brought the rich, diverse, and painful heritage of the Negro spiritual to the world stage. In the process, they saved Fisk University and established the Negro spiritual as a rich historical art form.
