Taylor Branch On Civil Rights (Rebroadcast)


Pulitzer-Prize winning author Taylor Branch's most famous body of work is his trilogy chronicling the history of the American Civil Rights Movement and the life of Dr. Martin Luther King. His most recent work distills the trilogy into a smaller volume that is meant to be used by history teachers to help educate students about this defining period in our nation's history. We'll talk with Mr. Branch about the Civil Rights era and what led him to write so extensively about it, about race today, and more, when Charlotte Talks. Originally Aired 2/7/2013.
