Publisher's Summary

Our series “Deeply Rooted: Commemorating the Civil Rights Movement” continues with two men who helped paint the human mosaic of America 50 years ago. Clayborne Carson was a 19 year old college student on August 28, 1963, and Roger Mudd was an anchor for CBS Evening News. Both men, along with a few hundred thousand others, attended the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, the landmark rally that became one of the central events of the American civil rights movement. Carson is now the founding director of Stanford University’s Martin Luther King Jr. Research and Education Institute and is featured, along with Mudd, in the PBS documentary The March which airs tonight.

Then, Bob talks to American University Professor Keith Leonard about African American history, “black” identity, and what it means to be “post-racial” fifty years after the civil rights era. [Broadcast Date: August 27, 2013]
