Summer 2018 was conducted in Hayti. On Tuesday, November 20th, CDS Courses will screen these shorts at the Hayti Heritage Center at 804 Old Fayetteville St., Durham, NC 27701. Two of the documentary participants will also be present: there will be food from The Chicken Hut, and the Taqueria La Esperanza food truck will be serving tacos all evening.

Much of the population of rural America does not have adequate access to health care. The El Centro Family Health system in northern New Mexico covers 22,000 square miles and has a chronic shortage of health care providers. This film follows three practitioners in the El Centro system in their daily work and private lives. A primary care physician treats her patients stricken by the opioid epidemic with common sense and grace. A nurse practitioner provides home care visits infused with consideration and kind regard that keep his patients alive while his own home life suffers.

Sammy Davis, Jr. had the kind of career that was indisputably legendary, so vast and multi-faceted that it was dizzying in its scope and scale. And yet, his life was complex, complicated, and contradictory. Davis strove to achieve the American Dream in a time of racial prejudice and shifting political territory.

In 2013, in Shelby County v. Holder, the Supreme Court invalidates the part of the 1965 Voting Rights Act requiring certain states to submit changes in voting laws to the Justice Department for approval. Almost immediately, certain states take voter suppression measures such as enacting voter ID laws, redrawing district boundaries, and repealing same-day registration. Three months before the 2016 election, a group of volunteers across the country mobilizes to work on voter protection-to observe elections and to assure that all those who wish to vote are legally allowed to do so.
