Two Americas Meet

A month or so ago I watched a documentary called Meeting David Wilson. It was the exploration of the history of two David Wilson's one white and one black. They didn't only share the same name but they shared a history where one set of Wilson's were owned by the other. It was an interesting historical story that in the end united to ends of one family.

After the show ended NBC sponsored a dialog with thought leaders about the continuing issue of race in America. That is the first time that I heard of Tim Wise. Below are a couple of short video segments from the after - program.
