19 American luminaries of the baby boom years (1946-1964) share their personal stories and achievements in the inspiring documentary, The Boomer List.

Part of the American Masters series on PBS, The Boomer List invites viewers into the lives of a generation that were present during poignant moments of American history and culture.

Filmmaker and director of the documentary, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, wanted a film that “captures the boomer generation’s dynamic spirit.”

Some of the subjects include: Deepak Chopra, Eve Ensler, Samuel L. Jackson, Amy Tan, Erin Brokovich, Steve Wozniak, Julieanna Richardson, Tommy Hilfiger, and many more.

They openly discuss key topics that impacted their lives, and how they defined the American dream for themselves.

Stunning black and white portraits of the individuals featured are interspersed throughout the documentary, along with other exceptional baby boomers who were not interviewed.

The Boomer List is a celebration of this generation’s impact on American culture,” says Michael Kantor, executive producer of American Masters. “It is impossible to encapsulate in just a few words, but thanks to the talent both on camera and behind the lens, this remarkable film offers an incredible chorus of voices that somehow captures the zeitgeist of this era.”

American Masters: The Boomer List, premieres nationwide Tuesday, September 23, 9-10:30 p.m. on PBS (check local listings).

Tim Tebow

Doesn’t look like Tim Tebow will be returning to the NFL anytime soon. ABC released a press releasing stating that starting Monday, September 15th Tebow will launch the program’s “Motivate Me Monday” series. The program will highlight amazing people and their inspirational stories of triumph and overcome.

Tebow last appeared on GMA in January to support coverage of Superbowl XLVIII. ABC has made several additions recently to the hosting line up – Michael Strahan, former NY Giants football player, as a part-time correspondent and Tony Reali, a successful journalist and host, as their social media contributor both in April.

Tebow heads the Tim Tebow Foundation which brings faith, hope and faith to those in need – so it seems very fitting that he would be the perfect candidate to empower and spread motivation.

Oprah Winfrey has become more than just a successful talk-show host, she is a legendary figure that everyone admires. Her heartfelt words of wisdom are felt within every interview and her mission statements are clear no matter what charity she is involved in.

The one question that baffled even Oprah was when her friend Gene Siskel asked Winfrey, “What did she know for sure?” Not only did the question stop Winfrey in her tracks but it inspired her to write just that – what she knew for sure, a column featured in her O Magazine.

Oprah With ObamaNow after years of writing, Winfrey has compiled what she knows into a book – What I Know For Sure. The book provides wisdom, confidence, thoughts on the pursuit for excellence, health, happiness, love and spirituality. Anything with Winfrey’s name on it is never average. What I Know For Sure is a book that anyone can relate to. It’s a book that goes beyond stereotypes, cultures and preconceived notions – it’s a book developed on experience, perseverance and hope.

Everyone needs a guide in life and Winfrey’s book does just that. What I Know For Sure will walk you through the good, bad and set you up for the future.

In the book Winfrey says, “Having the best things is no substitute for having the best life.” Meaning objects do make a life. In order to have a fulfilled life you must be willing to live and learn. And while it may be rough, in the end having a good life will be worth the battle.

What I Know For Sure is a book for anyone. Everyone needs a little inspiration to get them through life.
