Stonewall Uprising:  America Experience

When police raided the Stonewall Inn, a popular gay bar in the Greenwich Village section of New York City on June 28, 1969, the street erupted into violent protests that lasted for the next six days. The Stonewall riots, as they came to be known, marked a major turning point in the modern gay civil rights movement in the United States and around the world.

Objects & Memory

This program is about the otherwise ordinary things in our homes and museums that mean the most to us because of their associations with people and experiences. The film examines items recovered or offered in response to 9/11, the Oklahoma City bombing and the Vietnam War, along with stories of people who find them important. Without the objects the stories would lack vibrancy; without the stories the objects would lack significance. Taken together, the commonplace is transformed into the remarkable and where the stuff of history is highly personalized.
