Eyes On The Prize--Video 3 (HS, ADULT)
This is the third in a series of four videos. Pepsi and HBO celebrate the culture, achievements, and history of African Americans throughout the years. This video consists of two segments: 5. AIN'T GONNA SHUFFLE NO MORE (1964-1972)--Muhammad Ali…Howard University…Gary, Indiana. Through these names, "black pride" came to the fore in the fight for equality, and African Americans reclaimed their heritage in different ways; and, 6. A NATION OF LAW? (1968-1971)--The Black Panther Party…Fred Hampton…Attica. These names equaled controversy in the America of law and order promised by President Nixon. Urban rebellion and campus unrest had brought cycles of protest and reprisals, leaving many wondering if America was in fact "a nation of law."

Eyes On The Prize--Video 4 (HS, ADULT)
This is the fourth in a series of four videos. Pepsi and HBO celebrate the culture, achievements, and history of African Americans throughout the years. This video consists of two segments: 7. THE KEYS TO THE KINGDOM (1974-1980)--Busing…Maynard Jackson…Affirmative Action. From the streets of South Boston to Atlanta's City Hall to the Supreme Court, Americans sought remedies for the problems of discrimination; and, 8.BACK TO THE MOVEMENT (1979-mid 1980s)--The powerlessness that was felt in many black communities in the third decade of the civil rights movement provoked both rage and activism.

Canonization of Katharine Drexel (HS, ADULT)
This video describes Mother Katharine Drexel's progress toward sainthood. Beatified on November 20, 1988, and canonized as a saint by Pope John Paul II on October 1, 2000, this documentary uses Mother Drexel's letters, personal diaries and family photos of her missionary work to tell her story. The program also includes the canonization ceremony in Rome, the miracles attributed to her intercession, and interviews with those who are carrying on her work and with those who have been touched by her legacy. Katharine Drexel - born into one of Philadelphia's wealthiest families - gave up her comfortable life for one of religion, poverty and abstinence. In 1891, she founded the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament, which grew from its original 14 members to a sisterhood of over 500 women staffing 65 institutions nationwide. A tireless worker promoting the liberation of Native and African Americans, Mother Drexel established a network of schools which served upwards of 25,000 black and Indian children, and founded Xavier University in New Orleans, the first predominantly black Catholic university in the Western Hemisphere.
