May 2014

Review: DVD: 1) "Battle: Change from Within" documentary from Missouri Extension: Excellent production standards. The story of one man, Elliot Battle, and how his effective, peaceful efforts brought desegregation to his Missouri hometown in the 1960's.  Inspiring. 2) "Eyes On the Prize" -- a PBS documentary on the early history of the civil rights battles in the South.  2 disk set. Unsparing and authentic.

ANR's new AA Compliance Officer, John I. Sims joins the team! / ANR at UC Davis Medical Ctr's job fair for Veterans & Disabled. / Cultural Resource Team announcement.

June 2014

Review: DVD: "Rocks With Wings" Very watchable documentary that mixes sports with diversity! Appeared on PBS some years ago. Excellent look at traditional Navajo beliefs and life on the reservation. The true story of a Black man who ends up coaching the girls' basketball team at a largely Navajo high school in Shiprock, New Mexico. Culture clash? Yes. The documentary shows how the two sides work toward a common understanding and unseat their cross-town arch-rivals who have been the state high school girls' basketball champs for 8 consecutive years! Great scenes from the climatic state championship game!  The girls are too short to dunk but, wow, can they nail those 3-pointers! Inspiring video -- 133 minutes.
