30 Days a Black Man: The Forgotten Story that Exposed the Jim Crow South

Ray Sprigle embarked on an undercover mission of journalism in 1948, and Bill Steigerwald describes what Sprigle found in “30 Days a Black Man: The Forgotten Story that Exposed the Jim Crow South.”

In a 10-minute conversation with The Bookmonger, Steigerwald describes Sprigle’s reporting, whether his journalism was truly objective, and how Sprigle’s work differs from the the 1961 book “Black Like Me,” by John Howard Griffin.

    A worthwhile book, I’m sure, but the connection was one of the worst I’ve heard on Ricochet. Some of Steigerwald’s words were hard to make out.
