Wayne Greenhaw Tomorrow
Countless national and international reporters have made their reputations by
coming down here and reporting on the Civil Rights movement, but then they'd go
back home. For the past 35 years we've had the pleasure and privilege of knowing
one great reporter who didn't just report the story....he lived it, too, right here in Montgomery.
Wayne Greenhaw has personally known just about every person - good or bad, black or white, right or wrong -
who's played any part in the movement since his early days as a reporter for the old Alabama Journal in the early 1960s.
He's eaten with them, drunk with them, investigated them, admired and reviled them.
And these personal connections shine through in Wayne's new book
Fighting the Devil in Dixie, which in one respect is a history of the fight
against the Ku Klux Klan in Alabama, but which really is Wayne's deeply intimate, highly
personal account of the people involved in the most significant American story of the past 50 years.
This book is an indispensable addition to every Alabama library. Every American library.
Come meet Wayne and celebrate the publication of this great new book.
He'll be at the store TOMORROW, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 14 FROM 4 - 6 PM.
Can't come? We'll get you a signed copy. Just call us at 334-265-1473,
or EMAIL US.
