The Civil Rights Struggle – 45 Years Later

Four and a half decades ago, many Americans were locked in a struggle for basic rights and equal treatment. We’ll look back this hour with Mark McPhail of SMU’s Meadows School of the Arts and photographer Herbert Randall who are both participating in the SMU Symposium “Keeping the Faith: Civil Rights and Social Justice 45 Years after Freedom Summer.” Texas writer Joe Nick Patoski will join us during the Scene segment to chat about his biography, “Willie Nelson: An Epic Life,” which was awarded the 2009 TCU Texas Book Award last night.
