    Essie Mae Washington-Williams is the daughter of the late Senator Strom Thurmond and one of his family's African-American maids. Thurmond, once this country's leading voice for racial segregation, refused to acknowledge her publicly but had a strong ongoing private relationship with her. Mrs. Washington-Williams discusses this relationship and the contradiction between the father she knew and his public image in this visit with Dr. Gail Saltz at the 92nd Street Y.
