What’s On Television This Week: Dancing with the Stars and Soul Train Awards

INDEPENDENT LENSES: HOME FROM SCHOOL: KARLISL’S CHILDREN 21:00 on PBS (check local announcements). Filmmakers Jeffrey O’Gara and Sophie Barksdale reveal the stories of arapaho children who were taken from their homes in the 1800s and placed in a federal boarding school in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. There they were deprived of their culture. The filmmakers follow a group of Northern Arapaho tribe members who traveled to school grounds in 2017 in search of answers for their people, who have fought for generations to bring back the remains of their lost children. In July, children who died at the Carlisle Indian boarding school were buried in their ancestral land.… While many tribes, including the Navajo and Utah, are still discovering their own truths about similar stories of violence, this documentary follows the Arapaho’s journey in 2017, sharing true stories of loss, love, and healing.

LIDBELLY (1976) 21:45 TCM. In this biopic Gordon Parks, director of Vala (1971), explores the true story of black history and exploitation that took place many years before fictional private investigator John Schaft ran the streets of Harlem. “Leadbelly” follows the life of the titular folk singer (played by Roger E. Mosley), who was famous for his 12-string guitar skill and for singing a song for the Governor of Texas that led to his pardon from prison. at least that’s the story. “He always refined his music to ensure order in a life that was otherwise chaotic,” wrote Vincent Canby in his 1976 film review in the 1976 Times. (Parks’ own life was recently explored in director John Maggio’s Choice of Weapons: Inspired by Gordon Parks, which also captures the journey of a black artist across America in its own way.)

SPACE JAM (1996) 17:00 on VH1. Michael Jordan stars alongside Bugs Bunny, Duffy Duck and the rest of the Looney Tunes entourage in this mid-90s comedy mix of live performance and animation. The classic cartoon shenanigans take place as Jordan is (literally) pulled into the world of Looney Tunes through a sand trap and is called upon by Tune Squad to help save the day (playing basketball, of course). Battle Royale pits the Nerdlucks, an alien team led by the Tunes’ nemesis Swackhammer (voiced by Danny DeVito), against Jordan and the Tune Squad. The good guys are helped by Bill Murray, who looks a little out of place but is very ready to rumble in a Tune Squad jersey. Can Tune Squad defend its home? Is that all guys? (The gang reappeared this year in Space Jam: The New Legacy, starring LeBron James.)

BACK TO THE FUTURE (1985) 19:30 at Syfy. This blast from the past – into the future – takes us for a ride with high school student Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) in his converted DeLorean time machine, created by the witty and unconventional scientist Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd). After a shocking meeting in an abandoned shopping center parking lot, McFly presses the pedal on metal flying in time. He gets to 1955, filled with high school nerds and bums.
