Catch programming in honor of Labor Day this Monday, September 7th on Channel 8 at 9:30am, Channel 9 at 4pm, and Channel 96 at 8:05pm. Join us for Labor Talk, with discussions on workers' rights, as well as stories from NeighborMedia citizen journalists on worker demonstrations that have taken place within the city.

On Friday this week, we'll be airing programs throughout the day in remembrance of September 11:

On Channel 9 at 9:50am and Channel 8 at 3:52pm Cambridge Responds: Solidarity March, recorded in the few days following the 9/11 attacks, is a recording of a march from Islamic Society of Boston on Prospect Street to Cambridge City Hall in Cambridge, MA, with speeches and prayers followed by candlelight vigil for the victims of 9/11/2001.

On Channel 9 at midnight (12am) and on Channel 8 at 2:50pm, watch Cambridge Uncovered: Patriot Act, a conversation recorded here at CCTV about the USA Patriot and Homeland Security Acts, and their effects on human rights, civil liberties, racial profiling, and local immigrant communities.

On Channel 9 at 1:07 am and Channel 96 at 8:52pm: Many Muslims are judged simply because of their names. Youth Media Program participant Mohammad Sayed shares his personal experiences of such discrimination in his production Mohammad, made as a part of the Spring 2014 School Year Production Program session of the Youth Media Program. Then, watch I Am Muslim, a piece produced by teens in the Summer Media Institute session of the Youth Media Program in July of 2013, which explores Muslim stereotypes and the lived experience of being a Muslim in Cambridge.

New video work by members airs each week on Channel 9 Sundays at noon (12pm) and Fridays at 7pm, and on Channel 96 Tuesdays at 1pm and Thursdays at 9pm.

This week, NeighborMedia reporters share stories on Erato, a new dance/electronica nightlife experience in Central Square. Kemp Harris, a local musician who has lived in Cambridge since 1978, is profiled this week, and you'll also hear a report on road construction projects around the city.

The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute movie about the way we make, use, and throw away stuff -- and how it affects our planet. Since the video was released in 2007, the producers behind the original project have released several new installments, including The Story of Bottled Water, The Story of Cosmetics, The Story of Electronics, and many more. Watch the films as a series: On Channel 9 Saturday September 5 12-1:45pm, Channel 8 Sunday September 6 12:30-2:15pm, Tuesday September 8 10-11:45pm, and Thursday September 10 2:30-4:15pm.

In the first segment, host and moderator Luis Vasquez talks with Vice Mayor Dennis Benzan and Rafael Ulloa, editor of El Planeta Media, about a new event coming to Cambridge during Hispanic Heritage Month: VivaLatino. This event takes place Sept. 26 in Central Square. Cambridge Uncovered plays every week on Channel 8, Wednesdays at 9pm and Fridays at 1pm.
