[Unedited] Vincent Harding with Krista TippettThis unedited conversation with the late Dr. Vincent Harding comes from our produced show "Vincent Harding, In Memoriam — Civility, History, and Hope." Civil rights veteran Vincent Harding died this week at the age of 82. He had a long lens of wisdom on how social change happens. He believed America is still a developing nation when it comes to creating a multi-religious, multi-racial democracy. Vincent Harding spent recent decades bringing young people into creative contact with elders, civil rights veterans — offering experiences of them, as he said, not as figures in history books but "as living and lively and magnificent." We remember Vincent Harding and how he embodied that legacy and its wisdom for us. See more at
