Wallaces Daughter

In this Wednesday, May 15, 2013 photo, Peggy Wallace Kennedy talks with reporters at the Alabama Capitol in Montgomery, Ala. Fifty years ago, Alabama's segregationist Gov. George C. Wallace stood in a doorway at the University of Alabama and tried to block two black students from enrolling. Wallace backed down when President John Kennedy federalized the Alabama National Guard and ordered troops to Tuscaloosa. Wallace's daughter, Peggy Wallace Kennedy, said her family has lived in the shadow of the schoolhouse door ever since. She said her father never told her why he did it and she never asked him before he died in 1998. Since then, she has been involved in civil rights events in Alabama. She wants to give hope to people by showing that families can change. (AP Photo/Dave Martin)
