David T. Beito, professor of history at the University of Alabama and editor of the HNN blog Liberty and Power, discusses his book Black Maverick: T. R. M. Howard’s Fight for Civil Rights and Economic Power (co-authored with his wife Linda Royster Beito), how a Howard speech probably inspired Rosa Parks’ catalyzing civil disobedience, his beginnings as a Seventh Day Adventist advocate for prohibition, how Howard and Booker T. Washington’s advocacy of economic  self-sufficiency helped the Civil Rights movement and the reality of the very near-past of the totalitarian Jim Crow South.
