    Shaking the Gates of Hell - Pulitzer Prize winning columnist John Archibald

    A conversation with John Archibald, author of Shaking the Gates of Hell: A Search for Family and Truth in the Wake of the Civil Rights Movement. Growing up the son of minister in 1960's Birmingham, his book explores the culture of silence adopted by the church and other prominent community leaders who chose not to speak out during the turbulent Civil Rights movement. Mr. Archibald also reflects on his many years in journalism tackling tough topics for which he was awarded the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Commentary, "for lyrical and courageous commentary that is rooted in Alabama but has a national resonance."

Excellent podcast! ❤️📚

A very easy to listen to podcast. Almost like sitting on the front porch with a friend and a nice refreshing drink. Jen is clear, articulate, and entertaining. It’s a wonderful way to learn more about authors and their backgrounds. Can’t wait to hear more.
