Episode description: This urban David and Goliath story follows Cory Booker, a 32-year-old Rhodes Scholar/Yale Law graduate, as he challenges four-term incumbent Sharpe James for the mayorship of Newark, NJ. As the young candidate struggles against the city's entrenched political machine, which routinely uses strong-arm tactics to hold onto power, his crusade sheds light on important questions about democracy, power, and poverty. And when James accuses his Ivy League-educated challenger of not being "really black," the campaign forces voters to examine how they define race in America. [cc]
