As remembered by William W. Hansen
June 4, 2019
Jim was the second director of Arkansas SNCC, a true warrior...and my best friend.
Jim was one of the original nine students (along with Ruthie Buffington, my late wife) who got expelled from Arkansas AM&N College (now Univ of Arkansas, Pine Bluff). Later on he completed his BA at the Univ of Arkansas (Fayetteville; main campus).
After SNCC Jim went on to work for the Federation of Southern Cooperatives in Atlanta and Epes, Alabama. The last time I saw him (Little Rock, 2011) he was working for the Texas Dept. of Agriculture.
Jim was a true warrior for righteousness and justice. Requiescat in Pace, my friend.
Many thousands gone....We SHALL overcome,
