Swift on “Loud and Clear” Radio: “The history of Recy Taylor’s heroic struggle”

Swift was featured as a guest speaker on “Loud and Clear” Radio with Brian Becker where she talked about Recy Taylor, who just died at the age of 97. Ms. Taylor was gang raped in 1944 in Abbeville, Alabama, by six white men, who were all subsequently acquitted. It was a case that Rosa Parks investigated, many years before she rose to prominence in the civil rights movement. Jaimee Swift, a PhD candidate at Howard University, joins the show.
