An Extraordinary 2 Days in Alabama Look at top of pages list on right column.

I am writing a brief but telling recollection of a bus ride and two days in Alabama.  We visited several places involved deeply with the desegregation efforts there, including the church where Dr. King had his office across the street and a few short blocks from the state capitol building.  We also met and spoke with a dignified elderly man, Fred Gray.  Attorneys know that name. Fred Gray was the attorney and adviser for Rosa Parks, the black lady who would not give up her seat on the bus to a white man.  Mr. Gray still practices law and runs the Tuskegee Human Civil Rights and Multicultural Center in Tuskegee, Alabama. 
So, that is the intro to what I hope will be an interesting tour 
of text and many photographs.
By doing this, you see more of our capability
and learn more about me, the man behind 
the camera in journalistic style photography. 
One image from the trip is below in a previous blog post:

  • 16th Street Baptist Church, Birmingham, where 4 young girls were killed by a dynamite blast
  • Montgomery, where in the shadow of the capitol building Martin Luther King was pastor of the Dexter Ave. Church
  • Tuskegee, Home of famous Tuskegee University and the infamous Syphilis Experiment
  • Fred Gray, Esteemed civil rights attorney, lawyer for Rosa Parks
  • Home of Booker T. Washington
  • Moton Field Museum to the Tuskegee Airmen who trained there

So this remains an intact article and not be bumped down by upcoming blog posts, the story and photos are going into a blog page format. See listing of pages on the right side column of this blog.
