Angie Coiro is in for John tonight.

Laura Rafferty – Executive Director The Napa Valley Museum

Angie Coiro is in for John tonight.

The Napa Art Museum announces the launch of a new series of virtual exhibitions: “Real/Time: Art of the Moment,” and the first exhibition in the series: “Tested by Fire, photographs and videos of Napa and Sonoma County wildfires by Napa Valley photographer Tim Carl.” The exhibition opens in the virtual gallery on the Museum’s website on Thursday, September 24, 2020 and continues through March 29, 2021.

Under Pressure

Top White House officials pressured the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention this summer to play down the risk of sending children back to school, a strikingly political intervention in one of the most sensitive public health debates of the pandemic, according to documents and interviews with current and former government officials.

As part of their behind-the-scenes effort, White House officials also tried to circumvent the C.D.C. in a search for alternate data showing that the pandemic was weakening and posed little danger to children.

DRIVING WHILE BLACK – with Gretchen Sorin

“Driving while Black,” the writer/ scholar Herb Boyd says in the film, “entails so much more than the simply driving while Black. It’s living while Black. It’s sleeping while Black. It’s eating while Black. It’s moving while Black. So, when we start talking about the restrictions placed on Black movement in this country, that’s a long history. That goes all the way back to day one. And so, you have to get to the root of it.”

DRIVING WHILE BLACK: RACE, SPACE AND MOBILITY IN AMERICA – a ground-breaking, two-hour documentary film by acclaimed historian Dr. Gretchen Sorin and Emmy–winning director Ric Burns – will air on PBS on Tuesday, October 13, 2020 at 9:00 p.m. ET (check local listings).
