Narrated by James Cameron 4: Fighting for Rights
' We were called coloured then, or gentlemen of colour ... To use the term black, well everybody disliked that. Black was a fighting word.'
This is the story of three remarkable black Americans who fought for equal rights and social justice for their people in the first years of this century. They were pioneers. There was Revels Cayton , the grandson of one of the first black Senators, who worked through the labour movement. Lt George Lee , who became one of the Deep South's most successful businessmen and a prominent Republican politician. And C. L. Dellums , who assisted at the birth of America's first black Trade Union - the International Brotherhood of Sleeping-Car Porters.
