The city council, under pressure from enraged homeowners, defied the court. The homeowners said it was a matter of economics, but their opponents called it racism. ... 48 HOURS spent two days and two nights in a town torn apart, where both sides still claim they are fighting for the American dream."--1988 Peabody Awards entry form excerpt. This program examines the controversy in Yonkers from the point of view of all sides, the white homeowners, blacks and Hispanics who want a chance for better housing and living conditions, and the political leaders, those both for and against desegregation. The program looks at one New York racially mixed neighborhood and talks with some of its residents to see why they are able to live together peacefully. Includes footage from the television show, People are talking, and from speeches by Yonkers mayor Nicholas Wosisco and councilman Nicholas Longo
