Program Description: NEED TO KNOW Special Edition
"America By The Numbers with Maria Hinojosa: Clarkston Georgia" is the story of a small town of 7,500 people that has gone from being 90% white in the 1980s to less than 14% white today. Located in the shadow of Stone Mountain, Clarkston was once a gathering place for Ku Klux Klan cross burnings and today is home to thousands of refugees from Vietnam, Somalia, Iraq and Bhutan - along with some forty other countries. This special is an intimate look at how changing demographics are reshaping the political landscape of America.
