Co-authors David Ikard and Martell Teasley talked about their book, Nation of Cowards: Black Activism in Barak Obama’s Post-Racial America, in which they analyze the expectations of African Americans following the election of President Barack Obama. They said they were inspired to write the book by two incidents: Obama’s “beer summit” and a speech by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder in which he called America “a nation of cowards” on race relations.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2014 LCV Cities Tour” in Tallahassee, Florida, from February 16-20 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Comcast Cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
