- Program Description
Through five decades, Jesse Jackson has been trying to realize the promise of his own potential he first embraced as a boy in segregated Greenville, SC. His life has been a headlong rush toward that end, fueled by a mix of personal aggrievement, ambition, his own vision of what America should be, and his quixotic but enduring belief that he might be able to change the country--and the world. Drawn from journalist Marshall Frady's upcoming biography Pilgrimage, the program is not only a rare in-depth look at the man, but also offers a portrait of race and politics in post-war America.
