Humankind - Anti War in Literature / Wage Peace

This series profiles humanitarians, idealists and visionaries, hosted by award-winning documentary producer DAVID FREUDBERG.

SEGMENT 1: Author Cynthia Wachtell describes contrasting views of war in American literature, including the Civil War reflections of Walt Whitman and the fervent anti-war beliefs expressed by Mark Twain in several works.

SEGMENT 2: We explore the convictions, challenges and successes of people who "wage peace" including accounts -- from Yugoslavia to South Africa -- of non-violent movements that successfully ousted unjust leaders.
