Free All Along: The Robert Penn Warren Civil Rights Interviews
Tags: Stephen Drury Smith

In the height of the civil rights movement of the 1960s, Pulitzer Prize - winning author and poet Robert Penn Warren interviewed key leaders of the civil rights movement including James Baldwin, Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X. A year later he published an account of these conversations blended with his own reflections in Who Speaks for the Negro?, but the full extent of the interviews were never published. Recently rediscovered, Free All Along presents here the full-length interviews as original documents, bringing to life these vital historic voices of America's civil rights generation.
