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? 📺 It's like Netflix for history...

Gunfighters Moon | FREE WESTERN MOVIE | Action | Full Length Film | ENGLISH
Free Western Movie, Full Length Cowboy Film, English: Gunfighter's Moon - A notorious gunfighter returns to his ex-wife, who only wants him to save her sheriff husband from being killed by gunmen out to free his condemned prisoner. Gunfighter's Moon: Director: Larry Ferguson Writer: Larry Ferguson Stars: Lance Henriksen, Kay Lenz, David McIlwraith Genre: Action, Drama, Romance, Western Runtime: 1h 35min Country: USA | Canada Language: English Filming Locations: British Columbia, Canada Storyline: Henrickson plays Frank Morgan, a notorious and feared gunfighter that has lived his life on the run. His face and eyes reveal a man that has been very much hardened by that life. We quickly learn, however, that there is still passion inside. Upon receiving a telegram from Linda, an old lover (played by Kay Lenz), requesting his presence, he abandons his woman, mounts his horse and rides to Linda without giving it a second thought. Upon arrival, he learns that Linda is now happily married to the owner of the local general store. The only vestige of her past that remains is a daughter, who Frank is surprised to learn is his. The daughter, of course, does not know about Frank. Linda, not wanting her to know that her father was a notorious gunfighter has given her a fictional father that died a hero's death at the First Battle of Bull Run. Frank quickly learns that Linda's reason for calling for him has nothing to do with romantic feelings. She wants him to protect her husband. It seems that there was an attempted bank robbery in town and the local sheriff and one of the robbers was killed. The other robber is in jail, waiting to be hanged, and Linda's husband has been appointed to the job of temporary sheriff. A cousin of the prisoner is set to be released from prison in a few days, and has made it clear that he will do whatever is necessary to get his kin out of jail. Linda's husband believes that the town will back him up when the showdown comes, but Linda knows better. She knows that he will be killed unless Frank agrees to help him. The story unfolds as Frank comes to terms with the fact that Linda and, for that matter, his newly discovered daughter are forever beyond his reach. He must decide whether to help the man that now has the woman he loves or to simply ride away. Review: I first saw this movie on a cable movie channel about six years ago. I only caught the last half of the movie, but I loved it so much I searched the TV listings and would watch it every time it came on. I would set my alarm for 2 or 3 AM, whenever it was scheduled, Finally I was asked what I wanted as a Christmas gift. The only thing I could think of was Gunfighter's Moon! When I received it, I was thrilled. I have watched it so many times that I have lost count. It never gets boring or old. It is a classic. Lance Henriksen was incredible as he portrayed Frank Morgan. I found myself "caring" for Morgan as he went through a range of emotions and conflicts. The only thing I am disappointed with is there was no sequel - I wish Gunfighter's Moon 2 had been considered and released. Maybe it will be. This movie has it all - love, struggles, gunfights, hard men and Lance Henriksen with an incredible smile.
