Great interview. Katzenbach's description of the energy and excitement he and his young colleagues shared for their work in Washington really resonates with the rise of youth activism and engagement in this year's election.

I wonder whether Mr. Katzenbach has read Taylor Branch's trilogy on the civil rights era, in which he figures prominently.
