Series Description

Premiered January 1983 Since January 1983, FRONTLINE has served as American public television's - PBS - flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature over 23 years is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience. Series release date: 1/1983

Program Description

On the one-year anniversary of the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings - culminating in the historic confrontation over Anita Hill's sexual harassment charges - FRONTLINE charts the course of the hearings and explores how the bitter nomination battle reached deep into the psyche of black America. While the Thomas-Hill confrontation was reported as a story about the rift between the sexes, the dynamics of race - being black in America - were at the real heart of the story.
