Feb 20, 2013

What started as a few protests and sit-ins evolved into the Civil Rights movement, but how did that happen?

On Thursday's Up to Date, we’ll talk Taylor Branch, a historian who wrote about the 18 key moments that led to the massive movement in The King Years: Historic Moments in the Civil Rights Movement.

Taylor Branch is the author of Parting the Waters: America in the King Years, 1954-63; Pillar of Fire: America in the King Years, 1963-65; At Canaan’s Edge: America in the King Years, 1965-1968; and The Clinton Tapes. He has won the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award.
