John Archibald and Wayne Flynt on the church's history of silence

In a live recording to celebrate the publication of John Archibald's new memoir "Shaking the Gates of Hell: A Search for Family and Truth in the Wake of the Civil Rights Revolution," we chat with Archibald, RL Nave and Dr. Wayne Flynt about the history of silence and complicity in the Southern church. Archibald's memoir asks the question: "What good is a pulpit if you don't use it for good?" The event was co-sponsored by Books-A-Million.
