Radio Diaries’ next story, “The Two lives of Asa Carter”, will be broadcast on NPR on Friday April 20 at 4:30p EST
Asa Carter was an organizer with the Ku Klux Klan in Alabama who wrote George Wallace’s “Segregation Now, Segregation Forever” speech.
Forrest Carter was a Cherokee writer who lived in Texas. His autobiography, “The Education of Little Tree”, reached the top of the NYT bestseller list and sold millions of copies around the world.
But these two men shared a secret. This Friday, April 20th, Radio Diaries has the story of one of the great literary hoaxes of the 20th century.
