Summary
  • Sophie and the moonhanger: A woman pits herself against her husband and his Ku Klux Klan member friends when she learns that they are planning an attack against her black maid and her husband
  • Go tell it on the mountain: In this poignant adaptation of James Baldwin's novel about a few generations in the life of an Afro-American family, a young boy's efforts to gain some approval from his Bible-thumping, disciplinarian father takes center stage, and the family's background is told in a series of flashbacks
  • Honeydripper: 1950's. Rural Alabama. Cotton harvest. It's a make-or-break weekend for the Honeydripper Lounge and its owner, piano player Tyrone "Pine Top" Purvis. Deep in debt to the liquor man, the chicken man, and the landlord, Tyrone is desperate to lure the young cotton pickers and local Army base recruits into his juke joint, away from Touissant's, the rival joint across the way
  • Race to freedom: A number of slaves risk their lives to escape their masters with their only help coming from the famous secret slave escape network
  • The execution of Raymond Graham: It's 9:00 p.m. In only two hours, the life of convicted killer Raymond Graham will end by lethal injection in the prison's deathchamber. With chilling realism, this drama probes the inner life of a troubled murderer, as his apathy turns into terror as the final moments of his life slip by
  • Endgame: A story based on the covert discussions that brought down the Apartheid regime in South Africa
