Mr. Johnson discusses the unreported tradition of African Americans using firearms to defend their families and communities - a tradition that dates back to Reconstruction.  He argues that the non-violence of the Civil Rights era helped bury this fact of black history.  He talks with Columbia University's Zaheer Ali.
