The Fight for Freedom book jacket

THE FIGHT FOR FREEDOM

John Reynolds is an ordained American Baptist minister, serving as a pastor in Rhode Island for twelve years. Born in Alabama, he spent seven years with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), working with Martin Luther King Jr. and Ralph David Abernathy.  Reynolds lives near Charleston, South Carolina.

“The revealing, relevant, coming-of-age tale of a man and a nation.  Tracing his years in the civil rights movement, Reynolds offers an insider’s view of the people, events, and tactics that brought the United States closer to the fulfillment of the founders’ promise that ‘all men are created equal.’ Although this account concerns a time now past, it’s nonetheless a timely reminder that citizens should always be ready to fight the good fight.” -Excerpt from Kirkus Reviews

New (signed by author) in paperback – $15 plus  shipping. Proceeds benefit the Antioch division of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.

You Came Here to Die, Didn't You book jacket

YOU CAME HERE TO DIE, DIDN’T YOU

Sherie Labedis was born in Los Angeles, California, in 1946. She discovered a passion for civil rights when her high school English teacher asked his students what they were willing to die for. Sherie was only eighteen when she participated in 1965’s Summer Community Organization and Political Education project registering black voters in Pineville, South Carolina, for Dr. King’s SCLC.  At the end of the summer of 1965, with the financial support of the NAACP, she enrolled for a semester at Allen University, an African Methodist Episcopal college in Columbia, South Carolina.  She was the only white student on campus.  She returned to the University of CA, Berkeley, where she earned a bachelor’s degree and teaching credential.  She taught English and history for thirty-five years, most of it with at-risk youth, before retiring to write You Came Here to Die, Didn’t You– her first book.
