George Wallace : American populist by Stephan Lesher( Book )

9 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 1,188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of a small-town politician who had always stood up for "ordinary folks" regardless of color, but who then made the most of racial division when it became politically expedient to do so. But Lesher is by no means out to excuse Wallace on race. His intent, like that of Wallace's own most potent rhetoric, is simply to not let the rest of us off so easy - as if by having our villains all bad, we ourselves might have some greater claim on goodness.

"On the eve of his 75th birthday, George Wallace, one of the most divisive political figures of our time, reflects on his life. This four-time Alabama Governor and presidential candidate, a living icon of the era of racial segregation, is waging his final campaign to see that history remembers him as more than the defiant voice of the Old South. ... correspondent Bernard Goldberg interviews Wallace -- now deaf, a paraplegic, and suffering from Parkinson's disease. This conversation, woven through scenes of Wallace's political life reaching back three decades, centers on the great issue that faces us still: Race in America. Wallace insists that he never had hate in his heart, that he kept whites and blacks segregated only because he thought it was best for both races. And today, he says, he knows he was wrong."--1994 Peabody Awards entry form excerpt. Also in this program, the interviewees discuss Wallace's past views on segregation and whether they believe he has truly changed his views on race relations. The program includes footage of: several of Wallace's speeches; a 1960's interview with Wallace; a 1960's interview with Vivian Malone; footage of the assassination attempt on Wallace; and footage of racial violence and protests in 1960's Alabama
