    As a juvenile they said he belonged in prison. Afterwards he didn’t belong anywhere. What do a thief, kidnapper, two murderers and a heroin addict have in common with your child, brother, father? Take away the labels…and you’ll find these imprisoned teenagers are an awful lot like people you know. MINOR DIFFERENCES introduces five juvenile offenders in maximum security lock-up. We meet them again 18years later. Filmmaker Heather Dew Oaksen did not set out to establish long-term relationships with these jailed teens. But they won her hearts and she won their trust. Their powerful first person stories illustrate their struggle to overcome childhood trauma and incarceration as we witness their transformation from boys to men.

        This documentary, produced by WILL-TV in 1969, looks at school busing and the grievances of black students, educators and parents in Central Illinois. Dissatisfied with the lack of black faculty, black history courses, and black voices in the educational process, Decatur high school students talk about a school walkout that they held on Nov. 25, 1968. Then, Champaign-Urbana educators assess the progress of racal integration in area classrooms. Champaign activist John Lee Johnson discusses the role of the Concerned Citizens Committee, which was formed to study the grievances of black people who were concerned about racial tension in schools.

              from DisciplesNet Church Added

              Welcome to DisciplesNet Worship! Our worship brings an inspiring message by DisciplesNet team minister, Rev. Blanche Edwards, merging the passages from Exodus 3:1-12 of the baby Moses being launched into troubled waters with the story from John 5:4, "For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had." (NRSV) This worship has so much more, with the humble opportunity to share the gifts of Mrs. Blanche Hester, the grandmother of team minister Blanche Edwards and great-grandmother of DisciplesNet intern and high school senior, Joy Torrence. The two of them put their skills together to gather the audio and video for us to use, then edited it for those who are joining us in worship. We are all about connecting here at DisciplesNet, and love the opportunities that our unique location on the internet highway gives us to share with you and all others who come here a treasure trove of inspirational gifts that are hard to find elsewhere. Mrs. Hester is 98, and and now making a world tour! (to date, people from 112 countries had joined us for worship here). We are humbled to be able to bring this gift to you, as well as that of another revered minister, Rev. Raymond E. Brown, who blessed our DisciplesNet family by presiding at the table when he was at our DisciplesNet studio recently. Rev. Brown is a ground-breaker, bridge builder, and beloved mentor for several generations of clergy. Among many other roles, Rev. Brown served as the first secretary of the National Convocation of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). We have much much more that you will not want to miss. We hope you will join us for this short time of worship (30 minutes), and will be blessed by participating. Please tell friends, family, and others you know about our online church that is here with doors that never close, walls as wide as the world, and always room at the table. If you would like to chat with one of our pastors, please email us at pastor@disciplesnet.org. Instead of a call to offering within our worship video, we invite you to join others who made our presence on the internet highway with a sense of God's call to give to help support this ministry. We continue to grow steadily and have so many exciting projects planned to connect with people who have been connected from the church. If you would like to be part of making this ministry possible through giving of a gift, this can be done by going to our website disciplesnet.org and going through Pay Pal or credit cards, by writing to our physical PO Box at: DisciplesNet Church PO Box 17935 Indianapolis, IN 46217 or emailing us at giving@disciplesnet.org God bless you, and thank you for joining us! --------------------- Participating in Today’s Worship: Message: Rev.

                http://www.freemaninstitute.com/gallery.htm -- (Part 3 -- 3/3) Joel Freeman is on 100 Huntley Street TV program talking about his Black History Gallery Project. After years of research, Dr. Joel A. Freeman has cobbled together a rather remarkable Black History collection of well over 3,000 genuine documents and artifacts. The oldest piece is dated 1553 -- http://www.freemaninstitute.com/bhc.htm Since the taping of this program, Dr. Freeman's collection has been showcased two years in a row in the United Nations "Transatlantic Slave Trade" exhibition, with well over 250,000 people reviewing both exhibits. One of the items that was exhibited at the United Nations was a priceless 50 pound slave ball found off the coast of Florida at the site of the oldest documented slave ship wreck, the Henrietta Marie. The ship sank sometime between June and July of 1700. Another item was an authentic metal neck piece, designed to be welded permanently around the neck of a young female slave. It has metal balls and rings incorporated into the piece so that her movements could be detected at all times. Another piece on exhibition was the one-of-a-kind 1833 document hand written by Lord Aberdeen, who at that time was the British Foreign Consul in Trieste, Italy. It announced what would happen to any British subject who was still involved in the Slave Trade. Aberdeen later became the Prime Minister of Great Britain. Also included were two signed 1858 slave insurance policies from La Protectora, an insurance company in Cuba, providing proof that slave traders routinely covered the people they enslaved with life insurance policies. Consequently, they didn't care if they had to push slaves overboard or even if the slaves lived or died on the voyage. The traders were paid regardless. Many other items were also on display, including: engravings of slave ships, a document about a Chinese slave in Cuba written in Chinese on one side and Spanish on the other, a 14-page hand written Peruvian register (1811) from San Bartolome' Hospital (built in the late 1600s) listing the African slaves, and an extremely rare plaque (Eastgate Pottery) commemorating William Wilberforce and his anti-slavery campaign. The Freeman Institute Black History Collection is utilized by The Freeman Institute Foundation to help establish Black History Galleries across America and in selected communities internationally -- designed to educate and inspire young people of all ages -- http://www.freemaninstitute.com/gallery.htm The United Nations is continuing to show documents from The Freeman Institute Black History Collection in their on-going exhibition traveling around the world. Already eleven nations have signed on (Madagascar, Colombia, Switzerland, Senegal, Trinidad & Tobago, Bolivia, etc.), with more countries expressing interest in hosting the exhibit.
