work, in the making for 17 months at a cost of $45,000, is "the
tip of the iceberg of my collection," said Bibbs, but "will
help resolve some key issues surrounding Pleasant." The three-DVD
set, funded by the National Park Service, AAMLO, and private donations,
presents the dramatic chautauqua, interviews with preeminent scholars
on Pleasant's importance and context, documents, & information
