What to look for on Smart Talk Wednesday, March 9, 2016:

NO MORE is a national campaign to end domestic and sexual violence.  Spelled out in all capital letters, NO MORE sounds like a shout.  A demand.  It should be, considering the action needed to get the attention of batterers and sexual predators and maybe even society as a whole.

March 6 through 12 is NO MORE Week to shine a spotlight on two of the most important and dangerous issues of our time.

The Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape have a number of activities scheduled and points to make this week.

PCADV Executive Director Peg Dierkers and PCAR Chief Public Affairs Officer Kristen Houser do just that on Wednesday's Smart Talk.

Also, the influence and history of American Jews in cinema could chronicle the history of film itself.  But that's what Jewish film educator, historian and author Eric Goldman does. 

Dr. Goldman makes a presentation at Chisuk Emuna Congregation in Harrisburg Saturday exploring the film depictions of what it means to be a Jew in America. 

Dr. Goldman provides a preview and discusses a century of America Jews in film on Wednesday's Smart Talk.
