Paul Beatty’s new novel, "The Sellout," manages to make our national conversation about race witty, profane, rude — and also very funny. A real-life Peggy Olsen dishes on the not-so-glamorous reality behind the "Mad Men" era. And we hear about hundreds of protest songs from the Civil Rights Movement that were hidden for decades — until now.
