In loving, living memory, John Melançon 1928 – 2007
John C. Melançon
Was a member of the NAACP. Thought it was too conservative then.
In the South, most of the racist had a few blacks they new that if you included them they would say “Now wait, they are different.”
Person (minister) he worked with worked in the city slums and as he learned all of these people came from some little spot in the country he thought - we’re in the wrong place. Opened some thing with greek name.
Says it is women who did hardest work in civil rights movement.
