NPR Interview with Ellery Schempp

NPR ran a terrific interview today with Ellery Schempp (the man who helped put a stop to mandatory school prayer decades ago) and his biographer Stephen D. Solomon.

They were promoting Solomon’s new book Ellery’s Protest: How One Young Man Defied Tradition and Sparked the Battle over School Prayer.

By the way, if your campus group is a Secular Student Alliance affiliate, the SSA can help bring Ellery (schedule permitting) to your campus! More information is here.
