On the 65th anniversary of Rosa Parks’ bus boycott in Montgomery, Alabama, author and professor Michael Eric Dyson tells Lawrence O’Donnell that despite great progress, many Black Americans continue to face obstacles to equality. “Until now, when we’ve seen a Black president, when we see now a Black vice president, when we have had enormous political experiences of joy and victory, have also been the lack of opportunity on the bottom. That those who are stuck on the bottom of society – the totem pole does not favor them.” Aired on 12/1/2020.
