A recent documentary film about racial tensions on and around IUP campuses in Indiana and Punxsutawney reportedly has sparked some tension in Sutton Hall, the university's administrative center. Today's show includes a review of the film and an interview with its co-producer. Four guests discuss the race climate on campus.

They are:  Mr. Tony Appolonia, dean of students at IUP, Mr. Theodore G. Turner, assistant dean at the Punxsutawney campus; Student Jared Sims, president of the IUP chapter of the NAACP; Mark A Thompkins, a student who has attended IUP at both the Punxsutawney and the Indiana  campuses
