The passing of a visionary, heroic American

Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth.

Matt Schudel at the Post writes – Post on Shuttlesworth

Jay Reeves has an appreciation on HuffPost – Reeves on Shuttlesworth

An appreciation in NYT’s op-ed page – Shuttlesworth

We all know who’ll be making the front pages post-mortem, but think a moment. Steve Jobs, for all his brilliance (I work on an iMac myself), created new products for us to buy (many of them made under less-than-ideal working conditions in China). Fred Shuttlesworth took on Bull Connor and the full violence of racism and helped lead millions to freedom.

Later,
