Anne Braden: Southern Patriot
History Café screening and discussion of “Anne Braden: Southern Patriot.”
Anne Braden was a Kentucky civil rights leader whose activities caused some people to ostracize her as a “red” in the 1950s. Other people, including Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., hailed Braden as a white southerner whose rejection of her segregationist upbringing was “eloquent and prophetic.”
Braden’s life story reveals not only the dangers of racism and political repression, but also the power of a woman’s life spent in commitment to social justice.
