As 1,500 people cram inside First Baptist Church in Montgomery for an emergency meeting and shelter from enraged white supremacists outside, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. negotiates with Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy about federal protection for the Freedom Riders. May 21, 1961. From MARCH: BOOK TWO.
RIP John Seigenthaler, a legendary journalist, activist, and editor. While serving as assistant to Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, he helped push the Movement to the forefront of the administration’s attention, being brutally beaten alongside the Freedom Riders. He also provided coverage on white supremacist activities, broken mental health system issues, and helped establish Wikipedia verification standards. I was lucky enough to eat dinner with him last October in Nashville— a great and gentle human being who truly walked the walk and remained dedicated to the people’s struggle throughout his life.
