Peggy Wallace Kennedy, the author of The Broken Road: George Wallace and a Daughter’s Journey to Reconciliation, talked about her segregationist father’s controversial career as the former four-term Alabama governor and presidential candidate, and his later political conversion after almost being assassinated in 1972. She also talked about her friendship with Representative John Lewis (D-GA). The program includes clips from Governor Wallace’s famous “segregation forever” 1963 inaugural speech as well as an 1968 appearance on CBS News in which he explained his interpretation of what happened on March 7, 1965, between civil rights demonstrators and police officers on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama. A portion of an interview with Representative Lewis was also shown in which he explained how he forgave Mr. Wallace.
