The Issue of Mr. O'Dell (PG)

In the early 1960s, when America was brimming with racial tension and Martin Luther King was marching in Alabama, Jack O’Dell was at his side. At age 94, O’Dell eloquently recounts his experiences and views—from his early membership in the Communist Party to his opinions on the current state of racial affairs in the US, as well as the significance of Black Lives Matter. -PP
