- Anne Braden was a white southern anti-racist activist, organizer and journalist from Louisville, Kentucky. In this interview, Braden shares stories about her husband Carl and discusses his ideas, style and working class background. She describes her background of privilege and breaking from her class to marry Carl. Braden speaks about working, along with Carl, as field organizers for the Southern Conference Educational Fund (SCEF) and as the editor of the organization's newspaper, the Southern Patriot. She discusses SCEF's split, how traumatic that was to her, and the formation of the Southern Organizing Committee for Economic and Social Justice (SOC) in 1975. Braden's work with labor unions and race relations within unions are also discussed.
