The story of Anne Braden does a magnificent job of bridging that sometimes difficult connection between the Cold War and Civil Rights Movement in the South during the 1950s and early 1960s. Braden isn't a well-known figure from the era yet she's mentioned by name in MLK's Letter from a Birmingham Jail and the story of her and her husband, Carl, and their persecution during the Cold War and how it relates to Civil Rights challenges is a story that needs to be known.
