This special American RadioWorks collection contains six programs:

Remembering Jim Crow
For much of the 20th century, African-Americans endured a legal system in the American South that was calculated to segregate and humiliate them.

Oh Freedom Over Me
In the summer of 1964, about a thousand young Americans, black and white, came together in Mississippi for a peaceful assault on racism. It came to be known as Freedom Summer, one of the most remarkable chapters in the Civil Rights Movement.

Radio Fights Jim Crow
During the World War II years, a series of groundbreaking radio programs tried to mend the deep racial and ethnic divisions that threatened America.

Thurgood Marshall
In 1967, Thurgood Marshall became the first African American appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court. But Marshall had already earned a place in history - as the leader of the legal campaign against racial segregation, which culminated in the landmark Brown v. Board decision.

Say It Plain
The visceral impact of history's great speechmakers is at the heart of Say It Plain. This new American RadioWorks documentary highlights a selection of landmark sermons, speeches, and broadcasts by remarkable Africa-American speakers.

Whose Vote Counts?
The fiasco in Florida got the most attention in the 2000 election, and it would be easy to assume that better voting machines will solve America's problems at the polls. But the flaws in our voting system are deeper than that. It turns out that in the 2000 race, the people whose vote most often got lost or rejected were citizens who have been traditionally discriminated against - African Americans and other minorities, new immigrants, and the disabled. And when it comes to one whole class of Americans, the nation's 5 million convicted felons, a criminal sentence can mean losing the power to vote for life.
