This week, we explore the lesser known histories of the Civil Rights era, from a personal story about a family's turn to militant activism and the black entertainers who supported the movement. Plus, we look at how one professor tried to respond to D.W. Griffith's Birth of a Nation, more than 90 years after it devastated race relations in America.
