History Happy Hour: Deep South Dispatch, John Hebers, and Civil Rights Journalism

Journalist John Hebers’s memoir, Deep South Dispatch, chronicles the events of America’s racial upheaval from Ku Klux Klan cross-burning rallies to marches and riots in St. Augustine, Florida and Selma, Alabama, and extensive travels and interviews with Martin Luther King, Jr.. Anne Farris Rosen, Hebers’s daughter and co-author, tells the compelling story of her father’s dedication to bring the country’s racial difficulties to light, even as he faced retaliation and denial from white groups. Rosen is an award-winning freelance journalist based in Washington, D.C. and adjunct professor at the University of Maryland's Philip Merrill College of Journalism.
