At the age of 85, Hentoff is a radical in the best sense of the word — a true freedom fighter and warrior journalist with a deep‐seated intolerance of injustice. His integrity and willingness to buck the trends have earned him the well‐deserved reputation of being one of our nation’s most respected, controversial and uncompromising writers.
Well said. At age 85, Nat Hentoff continues to write books and a weekly column. His new book is At the Jazz Band Ball: Sixty Years on the Jazz Scene.
