This program opens in Haskell Ward's hometown of Griffin, Georgia. A prominent African American with vast experience in government, Ward narrates a personal story of accomplishments, struggle, and joy. Conversations with his ninth-grade teacher, a former classmate who is now a police captain, a 90-year-old resident, and other citizens of this community of 25,000 recapture the ambience of black life in a small Southern town between 1900 and 1950-a marked contrast with the present.
