Tulia To Be Featured On PBS Series

A panhandle town will be the focus of a PBS series.

"Tulia, Texas" will be on the Independent Lens at 11 p.m. Saturday. 

The film documents the 1999 Tulia drug raid in which 46 people were accused of selling drugs to an undercover narcotics agent.

39 of the accused were black, which set off alarm bells.

With the help of a local attorney, all of those convicted were eventually pardoned.
