Shirley Sherrod

The role of race in America once again took center stage when Shirley Sherrod, a Department of Agriculture official, was ousted from her job after a racial remark she made during a speech was taken out of context.

Department of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack apologized to Sherrod and hugged her at a news conference in August.
