Anderson takes a look at a remarkable documentary called "American Promise." Two African American boys literally grow up in front of the camera over the course of the film. It follows them in painful detail as they struggle to navigate a new school, where blending in is virtually impossible.
Anderson spoke with filmmakers Dr. Joe Brewster and Michele Stevenson, who are also the parents of one of the boys featured in "American Promise."
