      "The Lowndes County Freedom Organization"

      Remembering the efforts of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee in
      rural Lowndes County, Ala., a forgotten outpost in the civil rights
      struggle. Here the demand for the vote was answered with assassin's bullets
      and shotgun blasts. But the determined campaign for civil rights persisted
      and eventually gave birth to the Black Panther party.
      Producer: Dwight Cammeron

      "Rebels in the Pulpit"

      "When 15 year-old Mary Lee Cagle felt called to preach, she resisted. After
      all, in 1879 women preachers were practically unheard of, let alone in
      Cagle's native Lawrence County, Ala."

      An article about her from a recent issue of the Decatur Daily can be found
      **Landersville's woman preacher Mary Lee Cagle was 'called' in 1879,
      preached 60 years

      1:30 - 2 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 23, 2003
      Alabama Experience
      Description: Phenix City had a reputation as being "the wickedest city in
      America" until the National Guard crushed a crime syndicate there in 1954.
      This program looks at the resurrection of Phenix City and shows how a group
      of boys fulfilled the vision of their ancestors and restored respect to
      their hometown by winning the national Little League Baseball championship
      in 1999.
      Producer: Max Shores
