"On Second Thought" host Virginia Prescott spoke with Dr. Ed Pavlić about James Baldwin's writings on places like Atlanta and Charlotte help people understand the South of today.

From the article: "Baldwin reflected on his experiences in a 1958 article for Harper's Magazine. He wrote that the horrors of the South were previously images in literature and popular music to him, but he realized they were also part of his identity. Pavlić said the tour also showed Baldwin the power of mobilization that developed through collective and community action by black activists."
