MLK Biographer Jonathan Eig on King's Early Life, Radicalization & How Racism Still Kills

In Part 2 of our interview with journalist Jonathan Eig about his new book, King: A Life, the first major biography of the civil rights leader in more than 35 years, he talks about King’s early life and father; King’s formerly enslaved grandparents; the FBI’s push for him to abandon colleagues who were communists; and his opposition to the Vietnam War and launch of the Poor People’s Campaign just before he was killed. “We need to remember the radical words he spoke, and not just the safe ones,” Eig says. In Part 1, we looked at how the book draws on unredacted FBI files, as well as the files of the personal aide to President Lyndon Baines Johnson, to show how Johnson and others partnered in the FBI’s surveillance of King and efforts to destroy him, led by director J. Edgar Hoover. Eig also interviewed more than 200 people, including many who knew King closely, like the singer, actor and activist Harry Belafonte. The book has also drawn attention for its revelation that King was less cr

Legendary Singer & Activist Barbara Dane Turns 96; Watch 2018 Interview & Performance

Barbara Dane has led a groundbreaking life. In the 1950s she became a popular blues singer and performed with many leading musicians of the time including Louis Armstrong, Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, Memphis Slim, Lightnin’ Hopkins and many others. She eventually largely dropped out of the commercial music world to focus on activism becoming involved in the civil rights movement as well as the GI resistance movement during the Vietnam War. She and her husband Irwin Silber started the record label called Paredon to release music from freedom struggles across the globe. Dane also released her own recordings on Paredon–one was titled, “I Hate the Capitalist System.” In 2018 Barbara Dane stopped by the Democracy Now studio to talk about her remarkable life and play a few songs. Smithsonian Folkways has just released a new retrospective titled, “Barbara Dane: Hot Jazz, Cool Blues and Hard-Hitting Songs.”
