    The Bill Veeck Show: Sex And The College Student

    Host Bill Veeck and his guests discuss the issue of sex on college campuses. Dr. Alfred Flarsheim had recently published a book called “Sex and the College Student,” so his research was used as a guide. The other two guests, Andrea Tyree and Frank Wallace, were described as consultants. The panel’s feeling is that at that point in history, sexual morality was shifting, due in large part to the widespread availability of birth control methods. The guests describe sexuality as switching from being bounded by public morality to a private morality. The feeling is that since pregnancy is no longer a concern, the moral issue for couples is now whether sex is the “right” thing to do in the context of their relationship. The discussion moves between topics, but generally focuses on whether/how to enforce moral norms onto sexuality.

  • L.A. Riots

    L.A. Riots

    Andrew Jones goes to Los Angeles in the aftermath of the riots of 1992. He speaks with many people about the racial issues that sparked this uprising–the feeling that blacks and Latinos had been systematically discriminated against in their own neighborhoods for years. The main complaint is that stores in their neighborhoods were owned by whites and Koreans and they were overcharged for all services and products. Much of the tension appears to be between the blacks/Latinos and the Korean shop owners. Another interesting feature of the tape is the discussion of the differing motives between rioters and looters and between the actions in different parts of the city. For example, in some areas, only specific businesses, those that were seen as longtime oppressors, were targeted. A man shows footage from his camcorder of the looting, and notes that all of the looters were white, and all were smiling. Clearly, the situation in Los Angeles was far from simple. This tape is a fascinating glimpse into the psychology of the time period.

    [Jane Byrne’s Easter at Cabrini, Weinberg / Finerty edit]

    Tom Weinberg and Tom Finerty’s edit of Jane Byrne’s Easter Celebration at Cabrini Green. Shot for “Ambassadors of Cabrini.” Footage of an Easter celebration held by Chicago Mayor Jane Byrne at Cabrini Green, where she was temporarily living at the time. The tape begins with Byrne trying to lead the crowd in religious songs. However, after a short period of footage of Byrne’s official program, the camera turns to a large group of protesters (presumably Cabrini Green residents) who are angry at Byrne for her policies towards African-Americans, shouting, “We need jobs, not eggs!” In a widely publicized PR stunt, Byrne had briefly taken up residence in Cabrini Green, the notorious housing project. The protesters are almost immediately beaten by the police and taken to jail. The remainder of the tape is the crew’s attempt to understand what happened and locate the jailed demonstrators.
