Roland Martin talks to the author of The Defender, Ethan Michaeli, about the legacy of the  Chicago newspaper and it’s role in American and African-American history.


“I spent five years at the paper. I learned a lot about Chicago’s role played in the United States. I felt like I needed to tell that story to the world somehow. The Defender was a powerhouse against lynching and a catalyst for the Great Migration. It was the focus point of electoral America.”
