    Wilder's stories consistently explored the connections between the commonplace and cosmic dimensions of human experience, always returning to fundamental questions about the meaning of life. This Pulitzer Prize-winning tale concerns the lives of five people who fall to their deaths from a Peruvian rope bridge in 1714. A humble Franciscan, Brother Juniper, witnesses the accident and determines to learn about the lives of the victims in order to find out whether this accident happened by chance or by plan.

    There is a complicated relationship between African-Americans and Shakespeare. Long a symbol for elite white culture, Shakespeare was used in classroom and community to maintain barriers. Producer Richard Paul talks to Shakespeare historians from the Folger Shakespeare Theater and looks at minstrel show parodies of Shakespeare, color-blind casting of Shakespeare and how African-Americans are interpreting Shakespeare through their own experience.
