MSNBC will present a special hour-long “American Story with Bob Dotson” tonight at 8pmET. For more than three decades,
Dotson has been traveling around the U.S.A., on NBC’s dime, finding stories of people who are practically invisible but who’ve made great contributions to their communities. Dotson’s stories regularly appear on the “Today” show. This is the first year a one-hour special has been produced compiling the stories.
