Was overshadowed. For unbeknownst to his more urbane critics, George Wallace was setting the national political agenda for the remainder of this century. In electing Nixon, Carter, Reagan, Bush, and even Clinton, Lesher argues, the American people have voted for Wallace's ideas in gentrified form in every election since 1968.

"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
