Description
Series Description
In the final months of KCET's weekly, documentary series, BY THE YEAR 2000, four programs stood out because they dealt with THE single most exciting, challenging, frightening difficult issue facing our region: the multi-cultural, multi-lingual, people-reality of Southern California. Taken together, these programs, produced by Myra Ming, Valerie Zavala and Patrick Perez, probed, celebrated and gave voice to those intimately engaged in forging a more tolerant society. "SKIN DEEP follows three teenagers back to their families and communities after an intense weekend 'camp' experience exploring racial bigotry and gender discrimination with hundreds of their peers. SPEAKING OF YOUNG BLACK MEN features the opinions and experiences of ten, young African-American men. Simple and straightforward, the documentary lets the men speak for themselves. WE ARE FAMILY explores the changing definition of family in the lives of five groups of people. And, COLOR OF POWER reflects the changing demographic realities in Compton, a once all-white, then mostly black city...now, in raw numbers, an increasingly Latino city. Focused on a hotly contested City Council election, the documentary reveals new political realities. "These four programs, just a small part of the overall BY THE YEAR 2000 series, merit consideration because they represent excellence..."--1991 Peabody Awards entry form excerpt.
