Backstory on Pauli Murray, the Voting Rights Act and More

It’s been some time since we checked in with Backstory, the history podcast by Ed Ayers, Brian Balogh, Nathan Connolly, Joanne Freeman, and Peter Onuf.  Recent episodes include Red in the Stars and Stripes? A History of Socialism in America; 1980s Environmentalism and How the Reagan-Era Shaped the Natural World; Give Us the Ballot (from "LBJ and the Great Society"); and Fighting Jane Crow: The Multifaceted Life and Legacy of Pauli Murray.  H/t: JLG
