The Writer as a Social Actionist.
Anderson, Alvin Frederick
This paper argues that communication is not only the essence of being human but also a vital property of life. Writers must become socially active and play an effective role in human relations through their writing. They must also have the courage to disclose their experiences and personal feelings in spite of censure, risk, and economic privation. Examples of articles and books that effectively display the writer's social interest and concern are "All the President's Men" by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, "Muhammad Speaks" by Elijah Muhammad, "The Washington Merry-Go-Round" by Jack Anderson, and "Unsafe at Any Speed" by Ralph Nader.
