Voting Rights in the Kennedy Years

Thanks to those of you who attended Voting Rights in the Kennedy Years at the John F. Kennedy Library on November 29, 2010.   I was honored to be joined by John Doar, who traveled from NY, and Helen McCullough, the daughter of witness, B.F. Bourn, who came from Charlotte.  B.F. ran the grocery and meat market at 523 Mobile Street, the main shopping area of black Hattiesburg.   Carole Simpson was the moderator, and spoke eloquently of her fellowship at Tuskegee in early 60s Alabama.
