OTS Episode 2: The Saunders & the Stockyards   (TV Cut)
 
24:44
(Updated 7-5-2018) Whether Cowtown was a final destination or a stop along what was dubbed the Chisholm Trail - the Fort Worth Stockyards became the place where ranchers - with their working cowboys - came to sell their cattle to the waiting Commission agents. As the stockyards became profitable, so did the ranchers who had cattle to sell. This attracted the attention of other savvy ranchers and business owners who were looking to expand their horizons… all the way to Fort Worth. One such business owner was George W. Saunders whose family had settled in Goliad county, east of San Antonio. At the age of ten, his father gave him ten calves with his very own brand to distinguish them from that of his brothers on their large family ranch. Through his teens and as a young man, he helped run the ranch driving larger and larger herds of cattle to the Texas Coast and Louisiana Markets, and later up to the stockyards in Abilene Kansas, on a trail that ran right through… you guessed it - Fort Worth. But because of his knack for finding hot markets and making money, he transitioned from driving cattle up the trails himself to staying put in San Antonio by first becoming a commission agent, and eventually opening his own commission office around 1888.

Marching on the City of Big Shoulders: Stories from the Chicago Freedom Movement
 
01:29:08
To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Chicago Freedom Movement, the IOP, Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture (CSRPC), Office of Multicultural Student Affairs (OMSA), Black Metropolis Research Consortium, and Pozen Family Center for Human Rights, partnered to convene a panel of activists from the 60s, and mounting a photo exhibit of rare color photographs of Martin Luther King Jr.'s time on the South and West Sides of Chicago, on Thursday, May 19, 2016. Don Rose, Press Secretary for Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1966, Mary Lou Finley, Secretary to James Bevel in 1966 and Brenetta Howell Barrett, West Side political activist and NAACP regional director at the time, will share stories of what the city was like when Martin Luther King, Jr. moved with his family into a tenement in North Lawndale to aid the civil rights movement in Chicago. Recognizing that Voting Rights was just a first step in achieving full civil rights, King and his Southern supporters worked with local activists and drew volunteers from around the country to launch a campaign to end the slums called the Chicago Freedom Movement. Facing fierce opposition from city leaders and many white residents, King led open housing marches that were met with violence and hostility he deemed worse than anything he'd seen in the South. This special event examined the movement and its legacy 50 years later. Moderated by Susan Smith Richardson, editor and publisher of The Chicago Reporter.

Grenoble
 
33:05
Grenoble (/ɡrəˈnoʊbəl/;French pronunciation: ​[ɡʁə.nɔbl]; Franco-Provençal: Grenoblo) is a city in southeastern France, at the foot of the French Alps where the river Drac joins the Isère. Located in the Rhône-Alpes region, Grenoble is the capital of the department of Isère. The proximity of the mountains, as well as its size, has led to the city being known in France as the "Capital of the Alps". Grenoble's history goes back more than 2,000 years, at a time when it was a small Gallic village. While it gained in stature by becoming the capital of the Dauphiné in the 11th century, Grenoble remained for most of its history a modest parliamentary and garrison city on the borders of the kingdom of France.
