Ramona Goes to Washington with Daisy Bates; First Lady of Little Rock
7PM
RAMONA GOES TO WASHINGTON (10.30min)
A 20 year old media intern films Washington DC in a first ever attempt to chronicle news outside her  hometown SC community. Seen through the eyes of Ramona, Washington DC has its angry protesters, children carrying party signs, and mobs of people parading in democratic halls and malls. No voice will be unheard.Ramona journeys to learn the ways of the crowds and to make some small assessment of her country during troubled U.S. times and learns the effects and consequences of armchair politics versus the noise and effort of commitment.

DAISY BATES: FIRST LADY OF LITTLE ROCK (1:20)
Daisy Bates: First Lady of Little Rock tells, for the first time, the story of political activist and newspaper publisher Daisy Bates. As a black woman who was a feminist before the term was invented, Bates refused to accept her assigned place in society. In 1957, Bates' public support of the right of nine black students to attend all-white Central High in Little Rock, Arkansas culminated in a constitutional crisis pitting a president against a governor, and a community against itself. As head of the Arkansas NAACP, and protector of the nine students, Bates would achieve instant fame as the drama played out on national television. But that fame would prove fleeting and for her attempts to remain relevant, she would pay a hefty price.
