Episode Summary

EDIT
Port Chicago
AIRED:
In 1944, in the midst of World War II, a disastrous explosion rocked the U.S. Navy's Port Chicago near San Francisco, killing more than 350 sailors, most of them African-Americans. Following the blast, a group of 50 sailors refused to return to work until changes were made to assure their safety. They were charged with mutiny and court martialed, but later their convictions were reversed. Now, a surviving sailor wants his record and those of all the other "mutineers" cleared. Asked to handle the investigation discreetly, Cmdr. Turner discovers that an injustice was done and goes head-to-head with Lt. Singer in the courtroom. Meanwhile, Harm goes house shopping with Lt. Sims.moreless

      • Chief McBride mentions seeing a video of Jesse Owens, a famous African-American track and field athlete. Owens won four gold medals at the 1936 Olympics; he won the long jump and the 100 and 200 meter sprints and he was a member of the winning 4x100 relay team. Unfortunately, he experienced a great deal of racism during his career. Adolf Hitler refused to shake hands with him at the Olympics, and when he returned to the United States, he was not invited to meet with President Roosevelt like other Olympic athletes were.
