9:06 The Tuesday Feature:Back of the Bus: Mass transit, race and inequality

More than half a century after Rosa Parks refused to move to the back of the bus in Montgomery, Alabama, prompting an 11-month boycott that led to integration of that city's bus system, African Americans and Latinos are still struggling with an unequal transit system.

This week's Tuesday Feature is an American RadioWorks documentary examining the re-emergence of equal access to transport as a civil rights issue in the USA.

Produced by Andrea Bernstein and Nancy Solomon, with Laura Yuen and Casey Miner.
