"Explains how Graham’s talents as a negotiator and his genuine belief that there was good to be found in almost everybody opened doors for him to influence a wide variety of people. Graham was the inspiration of a generation of North Carolina liberal political leaders including Kerr Scott, Terry Sanford and Jim Hunt. Even today, it is hard to understand North Carolina’s political divides without knowing the history of Frank Graham."--D.G. Martin
