January 26, 2009 Hazel Scott — a classically trained jazz pianist and singer — was the first African-American woman to have her own television show. But her outspoken nature may have cost Scott her rightful place in history. Karen Chilton chronicles Scott's life and career in a new book. Chilton and Scott's son, Adam Clayton Powell III, speak with Tony Cox.
