Strom delivers an extraordinary look at the life of Strom Thurmond, the longtime senator from South Carolina. Thurmond was a pivotal figure in the nation's politics-particularly when it came to issues of race: the Dixiecrat presidential candidate in 1948, originator of the 1956 "Southern Manifesto" against the Brown vs. Board of Education ruling, holder of the record for a Senate filibuster for his opposition to the 1957 Civil Rights Bill. Yet as a young man, Thurmond had secretly fathered a daughter with the family's black maid, and he quietly supported this daughter through her enrollment at college and beyond.
