Writer’s Voice with Francesca Rheannon
We re-air our 2015 interview with acclaimed biographer James McGrath Morris about his biography, “Ethel Payne, First Lady Of The Black Press.” Few Americans today have ever heard of Ethel Payne, much less understood the giant role she played in reporting the story — and advancing the agenda — of the civil rights movement in America. Through Payne’s riveting personal story, Morris takes the reader on an inspiring journey through the civil rights movement leading to a greater understanding of issues that continue to resonate strongly today.
