The Shipwreck that changed a Life
The remarkable story of a remarkable man: Lanier Phillips. We made this doc 20 years ago - a story about growing up with fear in KKKlan-dominated Georgia, enlisting in a segregated navy, facing death in the icy North Atlantic, and a rescue which galvanised a man to fight racial discrimination for the rest of his life.
Lanier died in 2012.. Remember him this week.
