Summary:
Ted Koppel takes viewers into the lives of three individuals directly involved in naming Senator Barack Obama as the Democratic Party's nominee for president: Congressman Robert Filner who, as an 18-year-old Freedom Rider, was thrown into Mississippi's Parchman Prison; Florida schoolteacher Lizzie Jenkins who recalls tales of her grandfather watching the lynching of five African Americans in 1916; and Congressman Artur Davis who as a law student worked to hold the Ku Klux Klan accountable for "The Last Lynching," which took place in Mobile, Ala., in 1981. The program illustrates that while the United States has come a long way on the road toward racial equality, there is still much left to accomplish.

Only available in the US.
