Criminal defense attorneys Gerald Lefcourt, Gerry Goldstein, and Barry Tarlow contend that televised trials are undermining the American jury system and prolonging the O. J. Simpson trial. Actor Mario Van Peebles shares his movie, "Panther," which dramatizes the Black Panthers' civil rights struggle, and talks about the introduction of drugs into the black community. Filmmaker Ric Burns shares his documentary "The Way West," an exploration of America's westward expansion from the Native American perspective.
