The Right Man


The Right Man is the heartwarming story of the plight of tiny Wiley College in Marshall, Texas, and its President, Dr. Robert Hayes. KPRC-TV has utilized the finest of its television techniques to tell the moving story of how Dr. Hayes was sent by his church to close the debt-ridden school. But, because of his strong belief in the need for black colleges, he not only elected not to close the school, but to save it. For this excellent television documentary, a Peabody Award to KPRC-TV, Houston.
