Civil Rights Reflections: A Somber 50th

  • Aired: 09/15/2013
  • 01:52
  • Rating: NR
Tonight, a few lives remembered from the Civil Rights era. They would have been in their early 60's now — grandmothers, perhaps. Denise McNail, Carol Robertson, Addie May Collins and Cynthia Wesley were killed 50 years ago today in one of the worst acts of violence during the Civil Rights Movement. Also remembered tonight, Demetrius Newton, a Civil Rights attorney and Alabama legislator.
