In a divided country desperate for unity, two sons of South Carolina show how different races, life experiences, and pathways can lead to a deep friendship—even in a state that was rocked to its core by the 2015 Charleston church shooting. One guest, an African-American US senator, and the other guest, a retired white US congressman, won’t allow racial lines to divide them. They worked together, eat meals together, campaigned together, and made decisions together. Yet in the fall of 2010—as two brand-new members of the US House of Representatives—they did not even know each other. Their story as politicians and friends began the moment they met and is a model for others seeking true reconciliation. Don't miss this riveting conversation.
