The city of Wilmington, North Carolina once stood out as a vibrant, mixed-race community. That came to a dramatic end in 1898 when white supremacists staged a bloody coup in which the city’s government was overthrown and 60 black men were killed. Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Zucchino sits down with Walter to explain how his new book "Wilmington's Lie" chronicles it all.
