Bernard LaFayette Speaks on Dr. King & Selma


In case you missed it, one of our authors was on CBS Evening News last night in honor of Martin Luther King Day. Bernard LaFayette, author of In Peace and Freedom: My Journey in Selma, who took the directorship of the Alabama Voter Registration Project in Selma at just the age of 22, appeared on CBS Evening News to discuss his experiences in Selma during that tumultuous period and the inspiration that was Dr. King. Check it out above!

“Their purpose was to silence Martin Luther King, his voice,” said Lafayette. “But we can hear it everywhere we go. And that’s what my life was devoted to and has been and is now.” – Bernard LaFayette
