Civil rights icon Rev. C.T. Vivian was a firm believer of nonviolence — even in the face of violent attacks. So when Vivian was struck in the face by a sheriff for trying to register Alabama voters in 1965, he brushed himself off and rose quickly.
Vivian recalls those memories and more in his posthumous memoir, It’s in the Action: Memories of a Nonviolent Warrior. Reset brings on the Evanston-based author who helped write the book about Vivian’s decadeslong fight for equality and what he would think about today’s America.
