Carry Me Home

Lisa interviews author Diane McWhorter about her new book Carry Me Home: Birmingham, Alabama; the Climactic Battle of the Civil rights Movement. McWhorter grew up in Birmingham, the child of a privileged white family. When the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing happened in 1963, a pivotal event in the civil rights movement, McWhorter recalls that she and her family were barely aware of it.
