This month’s Black Voices Book Club selection traces the civil rights trail blazed by Dr. C.T. Vivian. We discuss Vivian’s legacy with Steve Fiffer, the co-author of “It’s in the Action: Memories of a Nonviolent Warrior.”
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which ended discriminatory tactics that made it difficult for African-Americans to vote. The new book Jimmie Lee and James tells the story of two of the unsung civil rights heroes who were pivotal in the passage of this landmark legislation. Joining us tonight are the authors of the book, Steve Fiffer and Adar Cohen.
