Race: Generation Change - We the People
The candidacy of Barack Obama has made race a central factor in the presidential campaign 2008. From the time of slavery, African-Americans have been one of the most disenfranchised groups in the US. For the same work, African-Americans may earn half as much as white Americans. They're more likely to get convicted and receive harsher sentences for the same crimes. Despite this grim reality, there is a new generation of African-American students on the rise. We follow two African-American teenagers in Washington DC who refuse to let race be an obstacle to their aspirations.
