Moving Midway

Robert Hinton grew up near an old mansion off a highway in Raleigh, N.C. - never knowing that his own ancestors had once been slaves there. Godfrey Cheshire's ancestors were the slave owners - and he grew up playing games in the spooky old house. A few years ago, the two men came together after Godfrey learned that the house was going to be moved to a different location. That move unearthed an unknown family history and helped both Robert and Godfrey better understand their personal connections to slavery.

Her Last Vote

Suzanne McDaniel Hayes has always been a committed voter, but this year she is more determined than ever to vote. Suzanne is terminally ill with cancer, but she's hoping to live long enough to cast her ballot for the last time in her life. As she tells Dick, she's trying to set an example for her three children. She intends to go to the poll with her son, who will be voting for the first time.
