    Moyers & Company [#114H] An Optimist for Our Times Angela Blackwell has spent her adult life advocating practical ways to fulfill America's promise of "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" for all. Now, with our middle class struggling, poverty rising, and inequality growing, the founder and chief executive officer of PolicyLink, an influential research center, finds reasons for hope in the face of these hard realities.
    This week Bill Moyers and Blackwell discuss what fuels her optimism. "I'm not discouraged, and I wouldn't even dream of giving up, because we're at a moment right now where I think we have more possibility than I've seen in my adult lifetime," Blackwell tells Moyers. "Part of what I've been feeling is that all the issues are finally on the table. So many people who are being left behind are now in places where they have voice, and influence, and they're forcing their way into the conversation."
    "America doesn't want to talk about race," she states, but says the future "is a five-year-old Latina girl. It is a seven-year-old black boy. What happens to them will determine what America looks like, and so this country, as a democracy, really cannot expect to continue to be proud on the world stage, competitive in the global economy, or having a democracy it can put forward as working in a multi-racial society if we don't invest in the people who are the future."

    Washington Week [#5142H] * Mitt Romney intensified his efforts to appeal to staunch conservatives and women now that he is the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, following Rick Santorum's exit from the race. Some Republicans have been reluctant to support the former Massachusetts governor because they consider him too moderate, and recent polls indicate women voters favoring President Obama over Mr. Romney. But it was the comments made by a Democratic strategist questioning Mitt Romney's reliance on his wife Ann's advice on women's economic issues that ignited the biggest firestorm of criticism from both sides of the aisle this week. We will take a closer look at the new pivot point in the 2012 presidential election, the "war on women," and how American politics have become so angry and divisive with Dan Balz of The Washington Post, Beth Reinhard of National Journal, and John Harris of Politico.
    * In Syria, the United Nations is reporting the ceasefire between government and rebel forces remains "very fragile." Syria has kept troops and heavy weapons in select towns in violation of the terms of the peace plan prompting the UN security council to consider deploying monitors to the region. But will that be enough to turn a truce into a stable peace? We will get analysis from Doyle McManus of the Los Angeles Times.

    Truly CA: Our State, Our Stories [#402] Monumental From the moment David Brower first witnessed the extraordinary beauty of the Yosemite Valley, his life was tied to the fight to preserve the American wilds for future generations. His fiery dedication and skillful activism transformed the Sierra Club, bringing the environmental movement into the public consciousness. Monumental re-visits Brower's unrelenting campaigns to protect and establish some of our most treasured national parks and monuments. At the center of the film are the themes that absorbed Brower throughout his life and work with the Sierra Club: the spiritual connection between humans and the great outdoors, and the moral obligation to preserve what is left of the world's natural wonders from the encroachment of progress. Weaving Brower's vivid 16-mm archival wilderness footage and interviews with leading conservationists, historians, politicians, and Brower's family, Monumental is an inspiring portrait of a true American legend.
