June marks a special moment in time for many. For the Black community, Juneteenth calls for festivities to honor justice and independence. For LGBTQIA+ persons and their allies, PRIDE is a celebration of living as your truest self. And for cancer survivors and their families, National Cancer Survivor Month calls for moments of reflection and enduring hope in the face of diagnosis and treatment. This month, reflect on these long sought-for, momentous milestones and more with new and streaming films on WORLD.
Living with Cancer
A cancer diagnosis changes our lives forever. But with science, fortitude, and love, people can - and do - survive. Despite losing her hair to chemo, Leslie finds beauty in her Blackness; Daniel and his partner use humor to cope with caregiving; and Mel fights the odds to overcome leukemia to become a runner. Three storytellers, three interpretations of LIVING WITH CANCER, hosted by Wes Hazard.
Established by Congress, the 14th Amendment promised citizenship in exchange for enlistment, prompting many African American men. They were denied due to Jim Crow laws but still served. The film examines the profound and often-contradictory roles played by Buffalo Soldiers in U.S. history, and how they fought on two sets of front lines: military conflicts abroad and civil rights struggles at home.
