Deadline Now: Theresa Gabriel and Anne Mitchell: A Conversation about Civil Rights

Friday, February 27, 2015 at 8:30 p.m.

Half a century ago, we were clearly two Americas: one black and one white. School segregation, the march on Selma, Freedom Summer and more events marked the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s.

Now, 50 years later, we have an African American President, but economic inequality still exists and our uneasy conversation about race in the United States includes police violence against young black men. So where are we when it comes to equality and justice in America? What needs to be done to ensure civil rights for all Americans?

Professor Anne Mitchell of the Bowling Green State University Department of Ethnic Studies and Theresa Gabriel, Toledo City Councilwoman, are host Jack Lessenberry's guests this week on "Deadline Now."
