Jesse Helms: The U.S. Senate

Season 2004 Episode 202 | 58m 29s

Host John Bason asks about his views on desegregation, in particular, to which Helms responds that he feels desegregation should have been encouraged and modeled rather than enacted by law. While he disagreed with the terms of our involvement in the Vietnam War, he stood by the soldiers who fought and expresses repulsion against many of the protests.
