It's been over a year since George Wallace, Jr. released a book that chronicles the life of his famous father. "George Wallace: The Man You Never Know" takes an in-depth look at the four term governor who ran unsuccessfully for President.
Wallace, Jr. admits many have the perception that his father, who died in 1998, was a segregationist. "He had been taught (segregation) as a child but his conscious overtime told him he was wrong about that. He moved forward as we did in the South and other parts of the country," Wallace told members of the Dothan Rotary Club Monday.
Wallace, in the book, also reveals secrets from his mother, Lurleen's, administration as governor. He also gives insight into the 1972 assassination attempt that left George, Sr. paralyzed; crippling what was considered a formidable run for the Democratic presidential nomination.
