After 48 years, forgiveness for a bus station racial attack

Almost 48 years have passed since a mob of white men beat up two civil rights demonstrators at a Greyhound bus station in Rock Hill, S.C. When asked Monday night if any of the people who beat him in 1961 in Rock Hill, or attacked the Freedom Ride bus days later in Alabama, ever apologized before, U.S. Rep John Lewis, D-Ga. said, "Never. Until now."
