Racial Prejudice Study/ Sierra Nevada Tales/ "Forever Plaid"


Racial Prejudice Study You find racial prejudice in the young and old, but there's an interesting difference in how they show it, according to new research. It turns out that older people are less able to hide prejudice than young people. The study was conducted in the U.S., Germany and Australia. The American researcher, a psychologist at UC Davis, will tell you about it.

Sierra Nevada Tales A new documentary premiering tonight on local public television tells three stories from Sierra history - "The Sad Tale of James Marshall," "The Great Flume Ride of 1875," and "African Americans in the Sierra Nevada." The show was made for KVIE, Sacramento's PBS station, by faculty and staff at Sierra College in Rocklin. Two of the people behind it tell you about it.

"Tales of the Sierra Nevada" premieres at 7 p.m. tonight on KVIE in Sacramento. An encore airs at 6 p.m. Sunday, March 29th.

"Forever Plaid" The Sacramento production of this musical comedy celebrates its 200th performance tonight. "Forever Plaid" plays at the Cosmopolitan Cabaret, a new theater on the perpetually redeveloping part of K Street in downtown Sacramento. The show is a fond portrayal of the close-harmony male-singing groups that were especially popular in the '50s.

"Forever Plaid" is currently running at the Cosmopolitan Caberet, 1000 K St., Sacramento. Performances are at 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays; 2 p.m. Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays; and 7:30 p.m. Sundays. Information: (916) 557-1999.
