Story in the Public Square

Bernard Lafayette

Season 1, Episode 5 of 17

Imagine the courage of a young black man in the Jim Crow South to sit at a "Whites Only" lunch counter; to need a military escort for a bus ride; to be assaulted by the Ku Klux Klan, and, through it all, to remain committed to non-violence. Dr. Bernard LaFayette has done just that.
