Broadcasting freedom : radio, war, and the politics of race, 1938-1948 / Barbara Dianne Savage

Publication | Library Call Number: E185.61 .S32 1999
Book cover

The World War II era represented the golden age of radio as a broadcast medium in the United States; it also witnessed a rise in African American activism against racial segregation and discrimination, especially as practiced by the federal government itself. In Broadcasting Freedom, Barbara Savage links these cultural and political forces by showing how African American activists, public officials, intellectuals, and artists sought to access and use radio to influence a national debate about racial inequality.
