Broadcast in 1990 In the 1970s, antidiscrimination legal rights gained in past decades by the civil rights movement are put to the test. In Boston, some whites violently resist a federal court school desegregation order. Atlanta's first black mayor, Maynard Jackson, proves that affirmative action can work, but the Bakke Supreme Court case challenges that policy.

BUT IN CHICAGO, AN UNPRECEDENTED GRASSROOTS MOVEMENT TRIUMPHS. FRUSTRATED BY DECADES OF UNFULFILLED PROMISES MADE BY THE CITY'S DEMOCRATIC POLITICAL MACHINE, REFORMERS INSTALL HAROLD WASHINGTON AS CHICAGO'S FIRST BLACK MAYOR.
