Description: As on every Friday in the Newsweek newsroom during the late 1960s, reporter Leandra Abbott and assistant editor Ruth Ross worked late into the night. Their boss had just edited a piece about one of the latest issues to emerge from the civil rights movement and the two were not happy with what they saw. The story, she says, lacked nuance and inaccurately represented African Americans.
