Historians Dan Carter, Glenn Eskew, and Angela Lewis talked about the life and legacy of segregationist Alabama Governor George Wallace. 

When George Wallace was governor of Alabama during the 1960s, he fiercely supported segregation in his state, famously standing in the school house door to prevent the enrollment of black students at the University of Alabama. Wallace later retracted these views and apologized for his segregationist policies. 

This event took place at the Birmingham Public Library in Birmingham, Alabama. close
