Inquiry: Andrew B. Lewis: THE SHADOWS OF YOUTH: THE REMARKABLE JOURNEY OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS GENERATION

Program: 
Date: 
Sunday, January 17, 2010 - 4:04pm

During the Civil Rights protests of the ‘60s, the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) played a crucial role in organizing grass roots sitdowns, protests and in voter registration in the Deep South. Staffed by youthful idealists like Julian Bond, John Lewis, Diane Nash and Stokely Carmichael, the SNCC often differed with Dr. Martin Luther King and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference on the tactics of protest and the pace of change. All those who worked for SNCC would be forever changed by their experiences. Writer, editor and teacher ANDREW B. LEWIS has written a dynamic and inspiring history of these young activists titled THE SHADOWS OF YOUTH: THE REMARKABLE JOURNEY OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS GENERATION. Tune into Inquiry tonight for a unique perspective on one the most crucial periods in our country’s history and of those people that changed that history forever.

Al grew up listening to the music of the 40’s on his father’s EH Scott radio and 78 records. Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Goodman were family favorites. This is first experience in the broadcasting field and allows him to dig into his closet of old vinyls and share them with his audience on the Sunday afternoon edition of the Jazz Matinee.
