Ethel Payne, known as the "first lady of the black press," may be the most influential journalist and activist most people haven't heard of. She covered presidencies and Vietnam, traveled often to Africa and was on the front lines of the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the 1963 March on Washington. Author James McGrath Morris joins Gwen Ifill to discuss "Eye on the Struggle," a new biography of Payne.
