      **COMING EVENTS
      ================

      **RACE TO EXECUTION on March 27
      RACE TO EXECUTION traces the fates of two Death Row inmates--Robert
      Tarver in Alabama and Madison Hobley in Chicago. Through these
      compelling personal narratives and the often unexpected results of
      research on race, justice and the media, RACE TO EXECUTION exposes the
      factors that influence who lives and who dies at the hands of the state.
      Watch RACE TO EXECUTION on March 27 at 10 p.m. on PBS.
      Visit the companion Web site for broadcast times and to find out more
      about cases of race:

      **1965 March 21- Thousands of marchers complete the first leg of a
      five-day freedom march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, dramatizing
      the denial of voting rights for African Americans. Led by Martin Luther
      King, Jr., thousands of marchers are protected by U.S. Army troops and
      federalized Alabama National Guardsmen because of violence encountered
      earlier, including the fatal beating of a white minister, Reverend James
      J. Reeb.

      1981 March 21- Michael Donald, an African American teen-ager in Mobile,
      Alabama, is abducted, tortured and killed in what prosecutors charge is
      a Ku Klux Klan plot. A lawsuit brought by the Southern Poverty Law
      Center on behalf of Donald's mother, Beulah Mae Donald, will later
      result in a landmark $ 7 million judgment that bankrupts The United
      Klans of America.
