How are the nation's current racial dilemmas impacted by the civil rights uprisings of the 1960s? This program is an exploration of civil rights coverage through the lens of a seasoned journalist.

The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza will present a conversation with Washington journalist, Anne Farris Rosen, daughter of Southern-born New York Times journalist John N. Herbers, who covered the civil rights movement for more than a decade.

Deep South Dispatch, a memoir co-written by Rosen and Herbers, recalls in chilling detail watershed events in the civil rights movement as well as Herbers' encounters with both Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the Ku Klux Klan.

This is the closing program for the Museum’s temporary exhibit, "55 Years" on display through October 13.
