My American Friend - Ep 7 - Jake from Alabama (Thanksgiving 2020 Special Edition)
Play • 1 hr 25 min

My American Friend Jake, lives in Alabama. He is a Historian, Teacher, Tour Guide and all round nice guy.

We talk about Civil Rights, the Voting Rights March and dig deep into his incredible first hand knowledge and experience as a Child and Foot Soldier of the Civil Rights Movement. He generously gives me an insight into what his life was (and is) like, during these (and those) most challenging of times.
