This week on From the Vault, we go back nearly half a century and immerse ourselves in a radio documentary on the confrontation over Civil Rights in Selma, Alabama. The Second Battle of Selma, produced by legendary newsman Dale Minor in 1965 during his time at Pacifica station WBAI, includes rare audio of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and actuality of the march on Selma. This program, a fine example of early Pacifica Radio editing and storytelling style, remains as relevant today as it did almost fifty years ago when it was first broadcast.
