This is the second installment* in Alan Weider's ongoing project to remember and revive the work of Studs Turkel. In March of 1965, Studs went to Montgomery, the capital of Alabama. There he would talk with locals about their personal feelings and what they hear others saying about the Civil Rights movement---and the Selma to Montgomery marches in particular. In addition to hearing from locals, Studs talks with Martin Luther King Jr. and at one point records himself waxing nervously about FBI surveillance.

Raised among the ferns and the farmland of Northern Washington, lyric-driven songwriter Anna Tivel loved words long before they became the backbone of her music. “My sister, my mom and I would go to our little town library with a rolling suitcase and fill it to bursting,” she remembers, “we read in the car, in the bath, under the covers late at night, always piles of books, always music playing, from Paul Simon to Dylan, from The Kingston Trio to Itzaak Perlman.”
Yesterday afternoon CIA whistleblower Jeffrey Sterling was convicted of all nine of the remaining counts he was facing.
ExposeFacts has stayed on this trial of the century - any century, really - right from the get-go up until the bitter end. and it was bitter indeed. But this is merely the theater that sets the stage for Republican's romp through the fields of freedom. It is going to get unbelievably worse.
