Gary Yerkey ’66 revisits Selma, Alabama
Gary Yerkey ’66 of Washington, D.C., was in Selma, Alabama, last week to attend the festivities marking the 50th anniversary of the Selma-to-Montgomery march.
His book South to Selma: ‘Outside Agitators’ and the Civil Rights March that Changed America detailed his and a Ripon College contingent’s participation in the voting rights march in 1965. It is available through amazon.com.
The photo shows Yerkey in front of Brown Chapel A.M.E., where Martin Luther King Jr. spoke at the start of the march.
