In the summer of 1963, law student Dennis Roberts worked as a legal assistant for famed civil rights attorney C.B. King (no relation to Martin Luther King). This was a time of intense activity, as SNCC's Southwest Georgia project under the leadership of Charles Sherrod battled segregation and denial of voting rights in some of the toughest and most racist counties of the Deep South. (See Americus GA Movement & "Seditious Conspiracy" and Federal "Jury Tampering" Frameup in Albany GA for background.) This daily journal records Dennis' personal thoughts and observations from the thick of the struggle as it was occurring.
