Human Rights Activist Morris Dees on Oct. 25 DIALOGUE

— Airs Friday, October 25, at 7:30 p.m. MT/PT
— Repeats Sunday, October 27, at 5:00/4:00 p.m. MT/PT

On this week’s DIALOGUE, host Marcia Franklin talks with human rights activist Morris Dees, the co-founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Dees, an attorney, is known for his cases against white supremacist groups. He led the civil lawsuit in 2000 against Richard Butler and the Aryan Nations in Idaho, which ultimately bankrupted the group. Franklin asks Dees to reflect back on that case, talks with him about the other human rights issues in which he has been involved since then, and asks him how he views the civil rights landscape at this time in American history.

Dees was this year's University of Idaho College of Law's Bellwood Memorial Lecturer. Franklin last interviewed him on DIALOGUE in May 2001.
