Series Description

FRONTLINE is investigative journalism that questions, explains and changes our world. Since 1983, FRONTLINE has served as PBS's flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience.

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.
