Hi NBPC Family,

*POV <http://cts.vresp.com/c/?NBPC/6fdefb5570/04399e82c1/00c85fd3a2>*'s
29th season opens with the award-winning film *The Return
<http://cts.vresp.com/c/?NBPC/6fdefb5570/04399e82c1/a12486574c>,* a
co-presentation with NBPC. *The Return *explores the historic 2012 passage
of California's Prop. 36, which shortened the sentences of those currently
incarcerated. Directed by Kelly Duane De La Vega and Katie Galloway, the
film follows family members, re-entry providers, attorneys, judges and
former prisoners during the reintegration process.

*May 19* will mark the 91st birthday of legendary leader *Malcolm X.* Since
his assassination in 1965, Malcolm X has been recognized by public media in
several documentaries. Whether in *Eyes on the Prize* episodes or
interviews with Black Panthers, his memory has endured in communities
around the world.

For the ongoing relevance of his message and its influence on African
American thought -- especially in the era of #BlackLivesMatter
<http://cts.vresp.com/c/?NBPC/6fdefb5570/04399e82c1/2e0c7696d2> -- we at
NBPC have dedicated a special birthday tribute to Malcolm X.

Remembering Regina Fraser

With great sadness, we would like to acknowledge the recent loss of *Regina
Fraser*, accomplished producer of the Emmy-winning and NBPC-funded
television series *Grannies on Safari
<http://cts.vresp.com/c/?NBPC/6fdefb5570/04399e82c1/7911ef3a2b>*. A former
airline executive and the daughter of a jazz musician (Rex Stewart), Regina
had an adventurous spirit and a passion for travel that made her a perfect
co-host for the show. *Grannies on Safari* began on WTTW-Chicago
<http://cts.vresp.com/c/?NBPC/6fdefb5570/04399e82c1/2c3f501144> in 2006 and
went on to air around the globe.
