I was one of the student representatives from Morris Brown to The Committee On Appeal For Human Rights (COAHR) in 1962 and 1963. Unlike a lot of fellow members on the Committee, I never spent time in jail. This was a result of outstanding contingency planning and execution on the part of hours of work by the Committee. One day on a mach to the Georgia State House, Lester Maddox, on the steps of the State House, called me a "northern agitator." I agreed with him and told hom I would wear that accusation with a sense of pride.
