Enjoy these three editorials, written by Carl Murphy and read by master storyteller Bill Grimmette.

First, you will hear an editorial from 1952, in which Murphy examines the Republican party’s decision to campaign in the south. Next, in an editorial from 1954, he asks why some whites are so uncomfortable with the ruling of Brown v. Board of Education, and implores Black leaders to use more care in their public speaking. Finally, in an editorial from 1963 he discusses the upcoming March on Washington, with a rousing refrain, “Come on down, Marchers!”
