Summary
Entering a crucible of racial, political, and legal issues, this program explores America's national debate over affirmative action. Viewers will receive a detailed look at the 2003 U.S. Supreme Court case which confirmed the legality of race-based academic admission criteria, as well as a behind-the-scenes examination of hiring policies at the Ford Motor Company. Observations from students, professors, legal plaintiffs, and activists shed light on the debate's central concepts-including the economic legacy of slavery and the use of quotas and preferences. In addition, former Secretary of State Colin Powell describes the role affirmative action has played in his career
