Ifill, civil rights lawyer and law professor at the University of Maryland School of Law and author of On the Courthouse Lawn: Confronting the Legacy of Lynching in the Twenty-first Century, discuss this pivotal moment in American history -- what has brought us to this moment, why our history is important, and how we can make this a new beginning for equity and social justice.
