The Second American revolution( Visual )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first program covers the period through 1930, during which the foundations for the civil rights movement were laid. The dawn of the new century was celebrated by the presence of prominent blacks in all fields, although inequities were still persistent. Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee join Bill Moyers to examine the various and sometimes conflicting paths that black leaders advocated. The second program observes that Supreme Court decisions often reflect American public opinion. This was true in 1886 when the Supreme Court ruled that states could enforce "separate but equal" laws, and it was true in 1954 with the reversing decision that segregation in public education was unconstitutional. Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee join Bill Moyers to examine the 58 years between these landmark decisions, when America was forced to dismantle institutionalized segregation
