In this video, the ongoing saga of the Wilson-Sims family continues to unfold. PBS cameras follow the biracial family over the course of a year and a half, as they deal with the typical problems of raising a family, compounded by the atypical struggles against racial stereotyping. The younger daughter, Chaney, is only 12, but is beginning to show signs of maturity in An American Love Story, Part 5: Chaney and the Boy. She looks older than her years and is ready for her first date. Her mother, Karen, looks forward to this next stage in her child's life, but her father, Bill, doesn't want her to grow up too quickly.
