Tense night in Fulton, KY — civil rights in the ’60s


I just heard from a great-grandson of Jubie Henderson, the hero of this little anecdote about some rough days in the struggle for racial justice.: “Freedom Drivers.”

Jubie was not only a good mechanic. John O. Jones, editor of the Fulton Leader in Fulton, Kentucky, saw this note on my blog back in 2004 and wrote to tell me that Jubie Henderson had been a highly regarded artist in Kentucky and Tennessee, and that he had died.
