TIDECASTING: Audio Interview with Civil Rights Veteran John Reynolds

August 2015 was the 50th Anniversary of the federal Voting Rights Act of 1965, widely regarded as the most important piece of legislation since the Civil War. Seabrook resident John Reynolds worked at the highest levels of the civil rights movement in the 1960s as a trusted colleague of Dr. Martin Luther King, Ralph David Abernathy, and other top leaders of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.

In this two-part Tidecast audio interview, Mr. Reynolds recounts his experiences and talks about how the Voting Rights Act changed the political landscape in the American South. He is joined by his wife Gloria for part of the session.

John is the author of the book, The Fight for Freedom: A Memoir of My Years in the Civil Rights Movement (AuthorHouse, 2012), available at Indigo Books in Freshfields Village and from online sources.
