Description: One June 21, 1964, three civil rights workers in Mississippi disappeared and were later found murdered. Twenty-five years later, some progress has been made in the area of civil rights and racial equality, but not enough. In a special one-hour live broadcast, The Eleventh Hour examines the changes that have occurred and what can be done to create greater racial harmony, and economic and social equity. The program will feature a studio audience, and viewers will be given the opportunity to call in to participate in the discussion. Host Robert Lipsyte's guests will include Joe Klein, who, in a recent article in New York Magazine, outlined policy changes in education, crime, and "personal responsibililty" that could bring about solutions to the "racial problem"; and Harriet Michel, formerly of the New York Urban League and now vice-chairperson of the Charter Revision Commission, who strongly disagrees with Klein's approach. Original Broadcast Date: 6-21-89
