In this episode Matt Crawford speaks with Richard Gergel about his book Unexampled Courage. This is the horrifying story of Sgt. Isaac Woodard"s blinding by a local police chief hours after his honorable discharge from the Army. What follows would be Woodard's fight for justice and the foundation for the Civil Rights movement in the south. Judge Waring and the President of the United States were among those who were deeply moved by this case and its outcome. A truly inspiring read that I recommend to all.
