We've got a captivating interview with RuPaul, who dragged drag culture into the mainstream, and a profile of 31-year-old Ti West, a hot new director who bucks horror movie trends.

You'll hear a lost speech by Malcolm X, and a look back at the very first movie to win a Best Picture Oscar. Finally, a gorgeous remembrance of Don Cornelius, the man who brought the man who brought positive pictures of African-American teenagers to television with the show "Soul Train."
