Stanley Grizzle: Civil Rights Pioneer

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Stanley Grizzle was a union organizer and Black civil rights leader in Canada, but his name isn't spoken in the same breath as U.S. leaders such as Martin Luther King, or A. Philip Randolph. Author Cecil Foster hopes to change that by chronicling Grizzle's work and the fight against discrimination in his new book, "They Call Me George: The Untold Story of Black Train Porters and the Birth of Modern Canada." He talks to Nam Kiwanuka about Grizzle's story.
