I don’t take sides in Democratic primaries; but if Andrew wins, I’ll be with him all the way.
“When We Rise” is the 8-hour ABC docudrama you missed last week that chronicles the equal rights movement Cleve Jones helped lead. Click here to watch it on YouTube. America’s capacity to overcome prejudice (“Irish need not apply!”) has never been better on display than here.
