Summary:
This case study examines the Civil Rights Movement in northwest Florida through the lived experiences of a Black Civil Rights activist. I attempted to situate the participant in the political as well as cultural and historical context of the time. By conducting interviews foremostly with the subject of this study as well as others and examining archival data, I developed a clear picture of the racism embedded in the dayto-day life of Blacks and Whites from the 1950's to the present. Within this framework, I explore the lived experiences of one ordinary man who had the courage to become an agent for change, who by his actions changed history. His story suggests that activists must possess vision and passion and be willing to risk loneliness and rejection if they are to be successful agents for change.
