"The Power of August" highlights key moments in American civil rights history

"The Power of August," premiering on CBSN at 8 p.m. ET on Friday, explores the transformational moments in American civil rights history that happened in the month of August. "The Power of August" will look at the violent and tragic incidents that laid bare the callous disregard for the lives of African Americans, such as the murder of Emmett Till on August 28, 1955. It will also highlight moments of triumph and hope that seemed to show the country moving forward in the struggle for equality, like the March on Washington on August 28, 1963. The special will look at how the impact of these August events is still felt today in the tumultuous year of 2020, when the voting power of Black Americans will be key in the presidential election.
