Interview w/ Black Conservative (Ayn Randian) Dr. Anne Wortham on Blacks and the Job Market

Dr. Anne Wortham, associate professor of sociology at Illinois State University, is author of The Other Side of Racism: A Philosophical Study of Black Race Consciousness (1981). Dr. Wortham has written that Ayn Rand's "natural-law defense of individual rights confirmed my misgivings about the civil rights movement and gave me the language of freedom and justice with which to formulate my doubts about civil rights policy... But the influence of Rand's ideas on my life went further still and helped me to understand human liberation in a deeper-than-political sense."
