Assignment America


Sorry, voting is now closed. The winning story will be revealed Monday night at 6:30 p.m. ET on the CBS Evening News. And tune in to catch Steve Hartman's report on Friday.

Send Steve to visit with Virginia's Chantey Singers. Long ago, African-American fisherman would sing songs as they worked on the ocean. Those songs would surely be forgotten by now if not for this small group of singing historians.

Or would you rather meet the Arlington Ladies, a group of women who go to every single funeral at Arlington National Cemetery. Steve could find out why.

Steve could tell us the tragic story that left one woman the sole provider for her 11 grandchildren. Then she learned about the kindness of strangers.
