Celebrating MLK: Charles McLaurin & Tracy Sugarman  

Charles McLaurin, "a foot soldier for freedom," was the featured guest of the Malcolm X Institute of Black Studies at its annual celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. McLaurin and his life-long friend Tracy Sugarman shared stories of the civil rights movement and of the sharecropper-turned-heroine Fannie Lou Hamer. Said McLaurin, "The only life she knew from birth to 1962 was sharecropping... Her mother taught her reading and writing using the Bible. She owned nothing — no land, no car — but she had God."
