BPL on C-SPAN

Tune in to C-SPAN Saturday, May 4, at 1:45 P.M. or anytime on the C-SPAN website to see the Book TV program recorded at the Birmingham Public Library on April 9.

In the program Barnard College and Columbia University professor Jonathan Rieder and Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Diane McWhorter discuss Rieder’s new book Gospel of Freedom: Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Letter from Birmingham Jail and the Struggle That Changed a Nation. Called “A sparkling reconsideration” by Booklist, Gospel of Freedom delves deeply into Martin Luther King’s Letter, examining its timeless message and its crucial position in the history of civil rights.
