In Alabama, T.K. Thorne is an author - and a retired captain of the Birmingham Police.
Her latest book - which delves behind the scenes of the city’s racial turmoil during the pivotal 1960’s - is titled, “Behind the Magic Curtain: Secrets, Spies and Unsung White Allies of Birmingham’s Civil Rights Days” - published by NewSouth Books.
I spoke with T.K. earlier this summer.
