David Simon on America's Divided Cities

Hosted by

David Simon has created enormously successful TV series, including The Wire and Treme. His latest miniseries for HBO is Show Me a Hero. It's about the battle to desegregate housing in Yonkers, New York in the 1980's and 90's. As the drama heightens, a federal judge has ordered public housing projects built in older, wealthier — whiter — parts of the city.
