“At some point in America, we're going have to get beyond blame and start accepting responsibility"- Cory Booker


In the 40 years since riots in dozens of cities stunned the nation, are we making progress? Bill Moyers interviews former Oklahoma Senator Fred Harris, one of the last living members of the Kerner Commission, which examined the root causes of the riots and offered solutions for change. Harris discusses his commitment to the cause of improving life in the inner city.

Then, Bill Moyers interviews Newark, New Jersey Mayor Cory Booker, a dynamic, young voice, who shares the lessons he’s learned and talks about the future he sees ahead for his city.


Race and poverty... forty years later. Weigh in with your thoughts on today's inner cities on The Moyers Blog.

Andrea Batista Schlesinger of MayorTV talks about the difficulty getting urban issues on the 2008 campaign agenda.
