Studs Turkel: racism and resilience in Montgomery 1965

program date: 
Mon, 02/02/2015

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.

JoAnn Hardesty Interview

program: 
Between Us
program date: 
Fri, 01/23/2015
Depending on who you talk to, longtime Portland activist JoAnn Hardesty's installation as president of the Portland NAACP is either a blessing or a nightmare.  This local civil rights icon's assumption to the office was compared by one post to the impact of an incoming artillery shell.  Don Merrill talks with Ms. Hardesty about how she's focused on helping the organization renew its tarnished image by cleaning house, setting new standards and following the first rule of getting yourself out of a hole; stop digging.
