WUKY featured an oral history interview from the Robert Penn Warren Civil Rights Oral History Project conducted in 1964. The WUKY piece features Warren's intriguing interview with Martin Luther King Jr. Warren, former poet laureate and author of such great works as All the Kings Men, interviewed over forty Civil Rights leaders and activists including Stokely Carmichael, James Baldwin, Vernon Jordan, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. Warren's interviews were used for his book Who Speaks for the Negro. The audio and transcripts for the oral history project are available and fully searchable online at http://kdl.kyvl.org (follow links to oral history).
