- Program Description
Four times governor of Alabama, four times a candidate for president, he was feared as a racist demagogue and admired as a politician who spoke his mind. A lightning rod for controversy for more than four decades, George Wallace both reflected and provoked tensions in American society. Featuring a diverse cast of commentators, this biography traces Wallace's rise from his roots in rural Alabama to his quest for forgiveness after a nearly successful assassination attempt on his life.
