Description:

Interview with Anne Braden, March 8-9, 1989 conducted by Catherine Fosl.

Anne Braden was a white southern anti-racist activist, organizer and journalist from Louisville, Kentucky. In this interview, Braden discusses her middle-class upbringing in Anniston, Alabama during the 1930s and her early awareness of racial discrimination. She speaks about her family, her Kentucky relatives, and the divisions her activism brought between her brother, and her segregationist parents. Braden talks about working alongside Carl Braden at the Louisville Times, their courtship, marriage, and commitment to building a new society, beginning with their labor movement work. She tells about her and Carl's involvement in the Progressive Party in the early 1950s fighting against social injustice, specifically the Rosenberg Case, the Korean War, the Stockholm Peace Petition, the Du Bois Case, and the Interracial Hospital Movement. Braden also discusses how she and Carl began to gain notoriety as activists in the 1950s as they became contacts for national movements.
