Birmingham Klansman Trial

Debbie Elliott reports that the trial of a former Ku Klux Klansman in the 1963 bombing of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham has stirred memories and resentments of that turbulent time, even as the city tries to project a new image. The Klansman's attorney says there is no way his client can get a fair trial in Birmingham, which is seeking redemption for its racist past.
