Segment 1: "The Laura Flanders Show"
(26.5 minutes)

In a time where unconstitutional and violent orders like the Muslim travel ban are the daily occurrences, it's important to lift up the people and organizations who have continuously been on the front lines of this work. In this special for Black History Month, Laura interviews Opal Tometi, a Black feminist writer, communications strategist, cultural organizer, and
co-founder of the Black Lives Matter Network. She is also executive director of the US' leading Black organization for immigrant rights, the Black Alliance for Just Immigration. Plus, a look back at our BLM coverage in Ferguson and Baltimore.  And a word from Laura on taking a breath in the midst of panic, to recollect, and then, organize.


Segment 2: "If a Story Moves You, Act On It"
(12.5 minutes)

Stories are necessary, but they're not as magical as they seem, says writer Sisonke Msimang. In this funny and thoughtful talk, Msimang questions our
emphasis on storytelling and spotlights the decline of facts. During a critical time when listening has been confused for action, Msimang asks us to switch off our phones, step away from our screens and step out into the real world to create a plan for justice.


Segment 3: "2016 High School Scholarship Essay Contest"
(76 minutes)

In 2016, the Physicians for Social Responsibility (Sacramento Chapter) received essays that were submitted by more than 130 high school seniors in
Sacramento and surrounding counties, reacting to this quotation from the Dalai Lama: "Peace can only last where human rights are respected, where the
people are fed, and where individuals and nations are free."
Each of the 10 finalists in the 2016 contest, chosen by a panel of distinguished judges, received a $1,000 scholarship. After each finalist read their essay at this May 1, 2016 event and responded to a question from one of the judges, the panel selected the First Place winner ($3,000 scholarship), Second Place winner ($2,500 scholarship), and Third Place winner ($2,000 scholarship).
