Interview with Anne Braden, June 11, 1996 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 childhood in Anniston during the 1930s, family trips to Eminence, Kentucky, and the lives of her aristocratic female relatives. Braden also comments on her individual perceptions of reality in terms of time and space as well as her thoughts on the afterlife and human sexuality. She talks about college life at Stratford and Randolph-Macon during World War II, her early love life and friendships, as well as her early career as a southern newspaperwoman. Braden also speaks about her later career at The Louisville Times in the 1950s and her marriage to, and subsequent life of activism and child-rearing with, fellow Times journalist Carl Braden.
