Lectures in History ® : Ronald Walters' Civil Rights Career 
8 pm and midnight ET Saturday  
We visit the classroom of University of Texas at Austin professor Peniel Joseph, who teaches about the life and career of civil rights pioneer Ronald Walters. In 1958, Mr. Walters organized a desegregation sit-in and was later influential in the promotion of African American Studies as a scholarly field. He also served as an adviser to the founding members of the Congressional Black Caucus, and was a campaign manager and consultant for Jesse Jackson's 1984 and 1988 presidential campaigns.

Astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the lunar surface, and their crewmate Michael Collins orbited the moon from inside the command module. In this NASA pre-launch interview, the crew describes their mission duties.
Ahead of the moon landing anniversary, C-SPAN partnered with polling firm Ipsos to survey Americans on their familiarity with and attitudes toward space exploration.

U.S. Politics & Government in the 1790s

American History TV recorded sessions from a Purdue University conference called "Remaking American Political History." In this program, the focus is on the early years of the new federal government and the politics of the 1790s. The first U.S. Congress was seated in March of 1789, and George Washington was inaugurated as the first president soon after.
