Hillbilly Views: Open Letter to My Beloved Grandsonhttp://hillbillyviews.blogspot.com/2015/01/open-letter-to-my-beloved-grandson_25.html
"By the end of February, the situation in Alabama was becoming very tense. Jimmie Lee Jackson was shot by a policeman and died several days later. His crime? Trying to protect his mother from being beaten. By the first week in March, the news was traveling and the big confrontation was in motion. A white minister died because he dared to join and side with the demonstrators in Selma. People in Berea were aware of events in Alabama. Everyone was trying to keep up with the news. People talked about what was going on down there. Finally, a decision was made to join with the demonstration in the final push toward the Alabama capitol steps in Montgomery. I would be a participant; I would be on that bus."
