Eleanor Holmes Norton: James Forman's Legacy

We look back at the life and work of civil rights pioneer James Forman, as recalled by Washington, D.C., congressional delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton. Forman, who helped to form the influential Student Non-violent Coordinating Committee in the early 1960s to battle segregation in the South, died of colon cancer on Monday at the age of 76.
