Alabama: "History is a gift from man who lived it"

The Montgomery Advertiser reports: It isn't often that young people have an opportunity to learn history from someone who actually lived it.

That's what Montgomery youngsters got Friday afternoon at the Lowndes County Interpretive Center where civil rights lessons are learned every day.

Joseph Glover kept boys and girls from the Houston Hill Summer Camp spellbound, telling them what it was like to live in a tent for 21/2 years.

He and sharecropper relatives were forced off land they had tilled for years after owners of the property punished them for taking part in efforts to register to vote. -- montgomeryadvertiser.com | Montgomery Advertiser
