Lewis M. Steel graduated from New York Law School in 1964 and joined the national legal staff of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. In 1968, wrote an article in the New York Times Magazine, entitled "Nine Men in Black Who Think White", which criticized the Supreme Court for its then recent record on civil rights. The NAACP fired him for writing the article. The program discusses the article and the status of civil rights legislation in the country. Only the introduction of the show has survived.
