Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Radio Curious continues the second of a two part conversation with civil rights lawyer, Barbara Phillips, a contributor to the book "Voices of Civil Rights Lawyers: Reflections From the Deep South: 1964-1980."   The Dialogue of Race 
Notes: Credits:
This is the second of two interviews with civil rights Attorney Barbara Phillips. She is a contributor to the book "Voices of Civil Rights Lawyers: Reflections From the Deep South: 1964-1980," whose editor, Kent Spriggs, we interviewed in December 2017.

In part one, Phillips shared stories and experiences from her 40 year legal career as a community organizer and civil rights lawyer. In this, part two of our conversation, we discuss her essay "Framing the Contemporary Dialogue of Race," that is featured in "Voices of Civil Rights Lawyers." We discuss the changing rhetoric about race, the Second Reconstruction and a Supreme Court decision addressing race prior to the 1980s. These decisions defined a broad scope for just and equal rights for black people in the United States.

As a retired civil rights attorney and retired professor of law at the University of Mississippi, and formerly a Program Officer of the Ford Foundation in the Human Rights unit of the Peace and Social Justice Program, she continues her life's work as a community organizer in Oxford, Mississippi, and continues promoting community justice programs around the world.

When Barbara Phillips and I visited by phone from her home in Oxford, Mississippi, on March 6, 2018, we began our conversation when I asked her about the essay "Framing the Contemporary Dialogue About Race."

The books Barbara Phillips recommends are "Whats the Matter with Kansas?: How Conservatives Won the Heart of America," by Thomas Frank, and "Transforming Feminist Practice: Non-Violence, Social Justice, and the Possibilities of a Spiritualized Feminism," by Leela Fernandes.
