Judy Bonds Interview Available Online

The Institute for Southern Studies posted the full length transcript of my interview with Judy Bonds on their website. The Institute, founded in 1970 by veterans of the civil rights movement, has established a national reputation as an essential resource for grassroots activists, community leaders, scholars, policy makers and others working to bring lasting social and economic change to the region. Helen Lewis first turned me onto their journal Southern Exposure after showing me a piece she wrote for them called "It Smells Like Money." Lots of good writing in there, be sure to check it out.
