In this interview, Braden shares stories about her husband Carl and discusses his ideas, style and working class background.

Braden speaks about working, along with Carl, as field organizers for the Southern Conference Educational Fund (SCEF) and as the editor of the organization's newspaper, the Southern Patriot.
