Lamar Alexander: Remembering the legendary University of Tennessee player and coach, Johnny Majors

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – It’s important to remind ourselves of the difficulty we have as a country in dealing with racial discrimination. We’ve made so much progress over the years, but obviously we have a long way to go.
