On this episode of Arts & Letters, we talk with writer and emeritus professor of Speech Communications at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, Dr. Allan Ward. His book, Civil Rights Brothers, The Journey of Albert Porter and Allan Ward, published by Award Press in Little Rock, chronicles his friendship and work with civil rights activist Albert Porter.
Ward and Porter "started out in two different places, far apart, unknown to each other. But the lines moved closer to each other. . . until they came together, and then side by side, next to each other."
