Published: May 6 2013 12:00AM

The most recent edition of Montgomery College Television's (MCTV) "Access to History" program features an in-depth interview with Stan Salett, noted author, policymaker, and civil rights organizer. Salett is the author of the book, <i>The Edge of Politics: Stories from the Civil Rights Movement, the War on Poverty and the Challenges of School Reform</i>, and president of the Foundation for the Future of Youth.

"Access to History" is produced by MCTV's Emmy Award-winning Producer/Director Dan Rankin. An earlier segment of the show, "Holocaust Survivors," won a 2012 Telly Award for educational programming. "Access to History: Politics & Education Reform" is currently airing on MCTV (Channel 10 on most Montgomery County cable providers). You can also watch it on the College's YouTube channel.

Both an activist and a policy maker, Salett's career is a journey through civil rights history. He was a key player in many important social innovations including the National Head Start Program and the National Upward Bound program.

Salett served as a staff member to all three Kennedy brothers, as well as on President Bill Clinton's transition team. He is a 2013 recipient of the prestigious Claiborne Pell Award in recognition of his four decades of work in social policy and education at the national level.

Salett now focuses on running a nonprofit foundation, Foundation for the Future of Youth, a division of the Eigen Arnett Educational and Cultural Foundation, based in the greater Washington, DC area.

MCTV creates high-quality, original educational and informational programming and supports the Montgomery College community.
