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.
