Mary Bishop takes an in-depth look at one of America's most massive social experiments--the forced migration of thousands of black men, women and children in Roanoke. It was called urban renewal and they were told that after their houses were demolished they could buy them back and move back in. But Bishop talks to many who lost their homes, churches and neighborhoods and finds out different. (Jan. 29, 1995)
