John Steinbeck's last major book, Travels with Charley, recounts his experiences while on a road trip across America with his poodle, Charley. Fifty years later, we follow in Steinbeck's footsteps to see how those places have changed or stayed the same. This week we're in New Orleans, where Steinbeck witnessed angry crowds protesting the desegregation of a public school. Produced by John Biewen.
John Biewen explains Steinbeck's journey...and his own:
