Dubbing E.B. the boy


"I'm impressed that he was clearly African
American,
yet he stood at the helm at something as mainstream and
significant as '60 Minutes' for all these years.

"W.E.B.
DuBois talked about the twoness of African Americans — to be American
and to be black
; well Ed Bradley experienced a threeness, if you will.
He was an American, he was black, and he was a journalist, and everyone
knows that's a whole different experience, too."

Alicia Nails, an
Emmy-winning television producer and director of the Journalism
Institute for Minorities at Wayne State University
, in Mekeisha Madden Toby's "Legendary newsman made '60 Minutes' tick"
