WXDU News, Sports, and Information Tonight (9/13) 6:00-8:00

First at 6:00 tonight, as Americans commemorate the 14th anniversary of the attacks of September 11, we join BackStory with the American History Guys for a discussion of the history of terrorism in America. From anarchist attacks on capitalist targets to the violence of the Jim Crow South to modern wartime tactics, the Guys explore how we define terrorism and how groups--and even nations--use this method of intimidation in "Fear Tactics: A History of Domestic Terrorism."

Then at 7:00, we turn to Deutsche Welle's WorldLink series for a look at the people behind international news stories. This week's show covers Arab states' response to the Syrian refugee crisis, a young refugee teen known as the "Syrian Malala," skateboarding's role in the education of Afghan youth, changing attitudes about the hijab in Egypt and a Palestinian microbrewery, plus a profile of Jean Darling, one of the last surviving silent film stars, who passed away earlier this month at the age of 93.
