Anne Braden : southern patriot( Visual )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anne Braden: Southern Patriot is a first person documentary about the extraordinary life of this American civil rights leader. Braden was hailed by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in his 1963 letter from Birmingham Jail as a white southerner whose rejection of her segregationist upbringing was "eloquent and prophetic." Ostracized as a "red" in the 1950s, she fought for an inclusive movement community and mentored three generations of social justice advocates. Braden's story explores not only the dangers of racism and political repression but also the power of a woman's life spent in commitment to social justice

Anne Braden Southern Patriot( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For six decades Anne Braden (1924-2006) fought for civil rights in America. Born into a white middle-class family in Louisville, Kentucky and raised in Alabama, Anne McCarty began questioning the racial status quo while attending a women's college in Virginia. Her work on newspapers in Alabama and Kentucky provided even more disturbing stories of the effects of racism and segregation. Her marriage to news reporter Carl Braden, a left-wing supporter of unions, further liberalized her views. The 1950s brought ample opportunities to demonstrate support of African American integration into mainstream American society."--From website
