Episode Summary

EDIT
I'll Fly Away: Then And Now
AIRED:
PBS prefaces its rebroadcast of all 39 series episodes (originally aired on NBC) with this new episode in which a 60-year-old Lilly recalls to her 13-year-old grandson a horrifying incident that happened during her final days as the Bedfords' housekeeper.
In 1962, a young African-American boy from Detroit who comes to stay with Lilly is kidnapped-then murdered-after speaking rudely to a white woman in public. The only witness to his abduction is Lilly's father, Lewis, who wants to see justice served-but must also consider his family's safety.
In an epilogue, Lilly returns to Bryland to discover the fate of her friends and employers. (2 hours)moreless
