Radio and the Struggle for Civil Rights in the South

Brian Ward

Choice Outstanding Academic Book 2004 Winner of the QAEJMC award for best journalism and mass communication 2004

University of Florida Professor Brian Ward's compelling book examines the connections among radio, race relations, and the civil black power movements in the South from the 1920s to the mid-1970s. During this time, radio's influence on entertainment while simultaneously informing, educating, and mobilizing black and white southerners, Martin Luther King and organizations as the NAACP, SCLC, and SNCC put a premium on access to the radio to try to influence opinions on racial matters in the South and beyond.
