Second segment: Jim Lehrer monitors a debate between Congressmen Al Swift (D-Wash.) and Patrick Roberts (R-Kan.) about a House of Representatives bill that would establish uniform registration requirements for federal elections. Would it be effective? Is it necessary? Does it constitute federal interference in local matters? How would it be financed?
Third segment: Charlayne Hunter-Gault describes an exhibit at the Corcoran Gallery titled "Facing History : the Black Image in American Art, 1710-1940." She interviews Guy C. McElroy, Curator and art historian, who spent five years organizing the exhibit which has been described as "a show of beautiful paintings" and also as "a penetrating reading of Blacks viewed by whites." He selected the art for both its aesthetic appeal and for the social attitudes it portrayed.
