In January 1990, Lawrence Douglas Wilder, the grandson of slaves, stood poised to become the governor of Virginia. That he was America’s first elected African-American governor made this an historic victory. That it happened in Virginia– home of the capital of the Confederacy–made it truly remarkable.
Through interviews, archival footage, news clips and photographs, Wilder: An American First tells the fascinating story of this skilled legislator, lawyer and politician, and his tempestuous rise to state leadership and national recognition.
Narrated by actor and native Virginian Blair Underwood.
