The struggle against racial segregation was center stage twice during the 20th century and #151; once in the United States, and once in South Africa. Examine the legacy of the movement's two most-prominent icons, men who devoted their lives to the fight for equal rights and were each awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Includes two feature segments.
  • Mandela and Apartheid and #151; Examines Nelson Mandela's dream of ending apartheid in South Africa, and traces his path from demonstrator to political prisoner to international statesman.
  • Martin Luther King Boulevard and #151; Explores what movements to rename streets after the slain civil rights leader and #151; and the resistance sometimes faced and #151; say about the state of U.S. race relations in the 21st century.
