Shirley Sherrod, former U.S.D.A. Georgia state director of Rural Development, recalls the controversy that ensued after conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart released a clip taken from a speech Ms. Sherrod delivered to the Georgia NAACP. The clip made it appear that Ms. Sherrod was guilty of racial prejudice and on July 19, 2010, she was asked to resign her position. It later became apparent that the video included selectively excerpted pieces from the speech and Sherrod’s critics and the Obama administration apologized for their rush to judgment. Shirley Sherrod was offered another position in the Agriculture Department, which she declined. Ms. Sherrod was interviewed by Esther Armah and responded to questions submitted by members of the audience at this “Between the Lines” event at the Schomburg Center in New York City. close
