Hector P. Garcia: Relentless Pursuit of Justice
In the wake of a rare media event, the national broadcast of another Ken Burns documentary, analysts and pundits alike are still chewing on the political miscalculation, they say, made by Burns in not adequately incorporating in his grand narrative the story of Mexican-American soldiers and veterans. On today's Thinking Aloud, we'll explore this ground not covered in the documentary. Find out just who Hector P. Garcia was and what his legacy means to American civil rights.—Original airdate: 11/7/2007
