Discussing Harvey Milk With "An Archive of Hope" Editor Jason Black
Harvey Milk was one of the first openly gay public officials in the United States. His story and tragic death have made him a civil rights icon in the GLBTQ movement.
Up until recently most of Milk's own words weren't widely known with only four of his speeches having been published; at least until now. Jason Black is an associate professor in Communication Studies at the University of Alabama. He is also the editor of "An Archive of Hope: Harvey Milk's Speeches and Writings."
Alabama Public Radio's Ryan Vasquez recently sat down with Black to discuss how he got involved in the project and the importance of Harvey Milk.
