Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth was one of the leaders of the civil rights movement along with Martin Luther King Jr. and Ralph Abernathy. But he was in many ways unsung. Middle Georgia State University Professor Andrew Manis talks about the legacy of Fred Shuttlesworth. In 1999, he wrote A Fire You Can’t Put Out: The Civil Rights Life of Birmingham’s Reverend Fred Shuttlesworth. This book is in the process of being made into a film.
I also speak with Dr. Michael Eric Dyson. He is a Georgetown University sociology professor, a New York Times contributing opinion writer, and a contributing editor of The New Republic, and of ESPN’s The Undefeated website. In January he released Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America.
Powerful spokespersons for truth about race past and present. Fire and tears.
