In Carolina Israelite: How Harry Golden Made Us Care about Jews, the South, and Civil Rights
(The University of North Carolina Press, 2015), Kimberly Marlowe Hartnett
, a writer and former journalist, introduces us to the larger-than-life personality Harry Golden. A writer, publisher, and humorist, as well as activist, Golden used his popularity and incredibly wide network for a variety of causes, most notably the civil rights movement.
Hartnett explores the ways Golden utilized his talents (he was, at his core, a salesman) to make America more equal and free.
