Cruz Reynoso: Sowing the Seeds of Justice

Watch Sunday, October 13, 2013 at 7pm on WORLD 

Cruz Reynoso: Sowing the Seeds of Justice paints a portrait of a man touched by injustice as a child who dedicated his life to fighting discrimination and inequality as a lawyer, judge and teacher. The compelling biography, told through a combination of archival footage and interviews, charts Cruz Reynoso's humble origins, his appointment to the California Supreme Court (the first Latino justice to serve in the state's highest court) and more recently, his leadership on the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights.
