In 1961, a photo of James Zwerg’s battered face went around the world after he was severely beaten when the Freedom Rides arrived in Montgomery, Alabama on their crusade to end segregation. This Civil Rights hero joins Jonathon Van Maren to tell his story.
Jonathon talks to Ryan Bomberger of the Radiance Foundation about #BlackLivesMatter, racism, the legacy of the Civil Rights Movement, and abortion.
Dr. Clenora-Hudson Weems is the author of the ground-breaking book Emmett Till: The Sacrificial Lamb of the Civil Rights Movement. She joined Jonathon to talk about the impact of imagery on the Civil Rights movement—and what we can learn from the story of Emmett Till.
