During the 1960's Holy Cross College, Black Power and Racial injustice were an unholy mix. At the same time a bold Jesuit priest by the name of John Brooks made it a memorable time for a small number of black men who he personally recruited. Men such as Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, Pulitzer Prize winning author, Edward P. Jones and famed defense attorney Theodore Wells. Tune in this Sunday evening at 10:30 PM when Al is joined by Businessweek editor and author Diane Brady. Her new book "Fraternity" shines a bright light on an otherwise dark time.
