The Ethiopian Exodus, Part 2  (aired 4/5/2007)
At the end of 1984 and in May of 1991 the Israeli government orchestrated 2 massive covert operations to transport virtually the entire Ethiopian Jewish community to Israel. The first was codenamed Operation Moses; a six week campaign to secretly transport 8000 Ethiopian Jews to Israel. The second was Operation Solomon; an unprecedented mass evacuation by airlift of over 14000 Ethiopian Jews in less than 26 hours. A new feature film titled Live and Become dramatizes these awe-inspiring events and explores the challenges faced by the transplanted Ethiopians as they struggled to integrate into Israeli society.

The Blending of America  (aired 1/15/2004)
Author and journalist Richard Rodriguez discusses race in America and his book, "Brown: The Last Discovery of America." Drawing on his own experiences as the son of Mexican immigrants, Richard Rodriguez challenges conventional notions of race and identity. Occasioned by the U.S. Census Bureau prediction that Hispanics were destined to replace African-Americans as the country’s largest minority, his latest book is a reflection on the cultural associations of the color brown.

Does Affirmative Action Divide Us or Unite Us?  (aired 7/28/1995)
Affirmative action has taken center stage in the current political debate. Now, is affirmative action necessary to correct historical wrongs against minorities and women, or is it a racial and gender spoils system that is dividing America?
