In this program, Bill Moyers returns to his hometown of Marshall, Texas-discovering, in his words, "a new town perched on the memory of one that's gone." Today it is hoped and expected that all of Marshall's citizens, regardless of racial background, share the responsibilities of living and working in a small town. But there was a time in recent history when the opposite was assumed and accepted, when there were two Marshalls-one black, one white. The town was made up of "two worlds," says Moyers, and yet they were both "waiting for an event." The time was the 1960s and the event was the Civil Rights movement.
