This week on the WUNCPolitics Podcast, a conversation with Mickey Michaux, a longtime civil rights activist who was first elected to the North Carolina General Assembly in 1972 as a Democrat.

Michaux has served as a U.S. Attorney and is considered by some to be a living, breathing relic of North Carolina.

When he was first elected more than 40 years ago, he was one of three African-American legislators at the Legislature.

Michaux reflects on his career in a conversation with WUNC Capitol Bureau Chief Jeff Tiberii.
