The Powerbroker tells the story of Whitney Young, who biographer Nancy Weiss Malkiel called 'the inside man of the black revolution.' By challenging America's business and political communities directly, Young was able to make in-roads where other civil rights leader could not. The Powerbroker chronicles the public and private trials of a man navigating a divided society in an explosive time.

Comments about PBS The Powerbroker: Whitney Young's Fight for Civil Rights DVD:

Any and all incorrect assumptions about this intuitive man are laid to rest in this powerful multifaceted account of Whitney's contributions. I purchased three copies for family and friends.

Long Overdue

Comments about PBS The Powerbroker: Whitney Young's Fight for Civil Rights DVD:

There is finally a documentary of Whitney Young, an unsung hero of the civil rights movement. Most people--including my students--have never heard of him. Like many of the other leaders of the movement, he was eclipsed by Martin Luther King, Jr. This slight has finally been righted. Bravo!!!
