The Journey of the African-American Athlete (1996)
Inspired by Arthur Ashe's three volume A Hard Road to Glory: A History of the African-American Athlete, this cable documentary from 1996 remains definitive. The African-American athlete is today a much-loved hero in American sports. In fields as diverse as tennis, football, basketball, baseball, track and more, the men and women who led the way and those who followed have become icons the world over. But the adoration we accept today was once rejection as these athletes undertook the struggle to meet their fellow competitors on a level playing field. The road that led to this legacy of achievement is paved with the names of the famous, and many are featured here, captured in some of the finest moments in sports history. Includes boxing's Jack Johnson, Joe Louis and Muhammad Ali; basketball's Harlem Globetrotters, Dr. J and Michael "Air" Jordan; tennis stars Althea Gibson and Arthur Ashe; baseball's Negro Leagues and the breakthrough of Jackie Robinson; Jesse Owens' triumph in the 1936 Olympics, and Tommie Smith's Black Panther salute of the Olympics of 1968.

Did Columbus Bring Syphillis Back to Europe? | The Syphillis Enigma | Timeline
In 1495 a new disease hit Europe. It was deadly, devastating and attacked those who were promiscuous, well-heeled and well-travelled. But what was Syphilis and where had it come from? The traditional view has been that syphilis was part of "the Columbian exchange" – one of the things, along with tobacco and the potato, that the New World gave the Old. Arriving in Spain in the 1490s with Columbus and his crew, this destructive new plague spread quickly across Europe, leaving no country, no city, no royal household untouched. But what if this assumption is wrong? There is evidence of syphilis in skeletons dug from sites in France, Italy and England. Bones found in a medieval graveyard in Hull show signs of the ravages of syphilis. But if syphilis was present in Europe before Columbus went to America, why was the 1495 outbreak so deadly? And why did everyone see it as an entirely new plague? Use code 'timeline' and enjoy 3 months of History Hit for $3 http://bit.ly/TimelineWatchMore Content licensed from DRG.

Christine & Léa Papin grew up in Le Mans, France. After a tragic upbringing, things appeared to be going in the right direction for them; they had a good job as head servant/cook & chambermaid in a the house of a wealthy middle class family. By all accounts, they were fed & treated well & had a comfortable heated room on the third floor of the large house of Monsieur Lancelin & his family. Then one day, the girls snapped...leaving a horrific trail in their wake. No one could quite believe that these two kind & demure young women, could be capable of such shocking & grisly murders. Many thanks to one of my sweet viewer's 'Melissa Sutton' for suggesting I research this case. Check out Oddie's Historical Feature playlist here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...
