Douglas A. Blackmon | The Harvest

Douglas Blackmon, Pulitzer-Prize winning author, journalist, and filmmaker, started his career at, get this, the age of twelve when an article he wrote published in his local newspaper, and he has not stopped since… Fast forward to his current project, PBS American Experience “The Harvest,” a documentary examining public school integration and the consequences, 50 years later, premiering September 12th, and you’ll understand why his passion for revealing the truth has yet to cease. He joins me on the line today to discuss his documentary, his career, future projects and why we should not forget our past.  

Marshall Ramsey, a nationally recognized, Emmy award winning editorial cartoonist, shares his cartoons and travels the state as Mississippi Today's Editor-At-Large.
