Summoned: Frances Perkins Gilman & General Welfare

Thursday, October 22, 08:00 pm on Vermont PBS | Duration: 0:57

The first woman appointed to a U.S. Presidential cabinet, Frances Perkins created the social safety net that continues to shape the lives of Americans today. In her 12 years as Labor Secretary under President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Perkins created the Social Security program, a federal minimum wage, the 40-hour work week and unemployment compensation, and ended the legal use of child labor. SUMMONED: FRANCIS PERKINS AND THE GENERAL WELFARE tells the story of Perkins' life through rare archival recordings of her voice, and interviews with Nancy Pelosi, George Mitchell, David Brooks, Lawrence O'Donnell and Amy Klobuchar.

The Video Lounge Chronicles: Dan Higgins

Thursday, November 12, 08:00 pm on Vermont PBS | Duration: 1:19

Dan Higgins, photographer, does not take pictures; he makes them. By collaborating with his subjects Higgins gains insight into often overlooked cultures. While much of the film revolves around Higgins' work in Winooski, Vermont, this documentary would appeal to anyone interested in small towns and their fate. His remarkable images from the 1970s through 2019 reveal the social impact of the town's many attempts to redevelop the downtown. A film by Eleanor Lanahan of Burlington, VT.
