Anne Braden was hailed by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in his 1963 “Letter from Birmingham Jail” as one of only five white southerners who he could count on as an ally. Braden’s story explores not only the dangers of racism and political repression but also the power of a woman’s life spent in commitment to social justice.
