Storyline

Grand Saline, Texas, a town east of Dallas, has a history of racism, a history the community doesn't talk about. This shroud of secrecy ended when Charles Moore, an elderly white preacher, self-immolated to protest the town's racism in 2014, shining a spotlight on the town's dark past. "Man on Fire" untangles the pieces of this protest and questions the racism in Grand Saline today.
