- Anne Braden was a white southern anti-racist activist, organizer and journalist from Louisville, Kentucky. In this interview, Braden reflects on what might be included in a book about her life. She discusses classism and gives personal examples of how her parents upheld social class distinctions and the difficulty she found in changing her class allegiance. Braden also speaks about her rejection of a woman’s traditional role and being a woman activist. Early twentieth century women social activists are also discussed.
