With the passing of the remarkable civil rights reporter Roy Reed (here is the obituary published on the blog this morning, penned by Ernie Dumas), I thought it would be worth passing along some links of Reed in action.
Here is a Steve Barnes interview with Reed on AETN , discussing his book “Beware of Limbo Dancers: A Correspondent’s Adventures with the New York Times.”
Here is a talk that Reed gave at the Clinton School on his oral history book on the Gazette, “Looking Back at the Arkansas Gazette.”
Here’s a link to the work Reed has done for the Arkansas Times, including a cover story just last month.
The D-G’s obituary, by Bill Bowden, is also a lovely tribute to Reed.
