Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee join Bill Moyers in recounting the struggle for equal rights from the time of the Emancipation Proclamation to the 1980s.
This eloquent program highlights the individual careers of African Americans who shaped history, such as Booker T. Washington, W.E.B. Du Bois, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Topics include Plessy v. Ferguson and the notion of “separate but equal,” Jim Crow laws, the Niagara Movement, the Harlem Renaissance, black service during the World Wars, Brown v. Board of Education, school integration, and the civil rights struggles of the 1960s. The program concludes that racial equality has not been fully achieved.
