Going out for lunch I heard a snippet of today's "Think" on KERA, the local PBS radio/TV affiliate. On today's program host Krys Boyd interviews Sharon Grimberg and Chris Eyre, who produced and directed (respectively) three films for the new PBS series "We Shall Remain" that attempts to chronicle Native American history through Native eyes. Listening I was reminded that the University of Texas at Dallas is hosting a preview screening of "Trail of Tears", one of the films of the series, tonight at 7:30. The film is being presented in Davidson Auditorium in the School of Management building, and will be followed by a panel discussion led by Dr. David Edmunds, professor of history and a member of the Eastern Cherokee. If you can't make it, the series debuts on public television next month.
