    George Wallace : American populist by Stephan Lesher( Book )

    10 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 1,183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

    Parting the Waters in mirror image, George Wallace recreates the drama of Montgomery, of Selma, of Birmingham, and of Tuscaloosa ... only from the vantage point of those resisting change. It shows us the dark side of ambition, and the darker reality of American politics, where, in Lesher's unblinking view, such revered leaders as Jimmy Carter and Hubert Humphrey did no better than Wallace on the matter of race when forced to choose between principle and political gain

    "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
