DVD: Salt of the Earth
Directed by Herbert Biberman 94 minutes 1953 Black & White
This is, by far, our own Kate Donnelly andf Clay Colt's personal favorite movie. Made in 1953, it portrays the struggle for equality of Mexican-American miners and their wives. The men fight for equality with Anglo workers, the women for equality with the men. Based on an actual strike in a zinc mine in Silver city, New Mexico, this film was made against all odds, by blacklisted filmmakers. Real miners and their families portrayed many of the cast. Sure its style is 1950's hokey, but the main character, Esperanza's speech, about rising up together hasn't been rivaled. There is also a documentary ("A Crime To Fit The Punishment") and book about the making of the film ("Salt of the Earth: The Story of a Film/The Fascinating Saga of America's Only Blacklisted Film" by its Director, Herbert Biberman, written in 1965, 11 years after he made the film) The book is available from us in our Books section. The only film we offer in two editions: this generic version, and the deluxe version with many extras (see Special Edition in next listing)

CD: Music For A Better World - Tha Truth
$17.00 $10.00 On Sale!
by political artist Tha Truth 2013 22 tracks.
The latest of four music CDs we carry by political activist and singer/songwriter Tha Truth. We don't carry music , but his work stands out as so unique, so positive, and it's so hard-to-find elsewhere. You won't find it on YouTube. Incisive, insightful, poetic and unlike so much else in music. It's music distilled from the reality of life in these United States at this time in history. Tha Truth gets to the best in us, in the worst of times. The album title is what it's all about: Music for a better world. This artist deserves the recognition he doesn't get, because in the business of the music industry, challenging the way the world works is rarely well-received or even heard by very many. You can be one more catalyst for change by playing this music. Link to it on your blog, Facebook page or website; get it played on your local college, community or commercial radio station. Send the CD to a D.J. you know and like. Spread the word. It's music to make this world a better place.
His best yet.

2014 an American Experience production * 118 minutes
"Authoritative and convincing...1964
shows us there we are still feeling the impact of those events 50 years later." - San Fransico Chronicle
"You don't have to have lived through the time to appreciate 1964 and its
thoughtful look at ideas that echo to this day." - Sacramento Bee
It was the year of the Beatles and the Civil Rights Act; of the Gulf of Tonkin incident and Barry Goldwater's Republican campaign for the presidency; the year of "Freedom Summer" and of the murder of three civil rights workers in Mississippi; the year that Americans learned smoking was bad for their health and Cassius Clay became Mohammed Ali; the year that cities across the country erupted in violence and Americans tried to make sense of the assassination of their president. It was the year that the Warren Commission released its Report o the Assassination of President Kennedy ten months after that national tragedy. It was that Fall on the University of California's Berkeley campus when the student-created Free Speech Movement was born in a defiant occupation of a campus building by hundreds of students from various political views. Based on "The Last Innocent Year: America in 1964", by award-winning journalist Jon Margolis, this film follows some of the most prominent figures of the time Lyndon Johnson, Martin Luther King, Jr., Barry Goldwater, Betty Freidan - and bring out from the shadows the actions of ordinary Americans whose frustrations, ambitions, and anxieties began to turn the country onto a different course. It was a year of civil unrest, extremes and national polarization - and of the beginning of the changes that would shape the nation for the next half-century. This is an eloquently produced retrospective of that decisive, tumultuous year.
