Patterson was editor of Atlanta Constitution newspaper (among others) during the Civil Rights movement in the 1960s and his editorial "A Flower For The Graves," in response to the notorious church bombing in Birmingham, Alabama, proved so popular that CBS news anchorman Walter Cronkite asked him to read it live on the air. Very Good (covers nice, contents clean & tight); one-inch chips to spine ends, few tears with internal mends with clear, archival tape; light stain front cover) d/j. $75.00.
