An Evening With Bob Zellner

ON THE ROAD — Raining in Wilson, NC, where I spent yesterday evening with Bob Zellner, author of “Wrong Side of Murder Creek” and a member of SNCC in the 60s — a southern white boy getting his head beat in with his black friends, called a communist conspirator, brave beyond belief. He laughs now as he reminisces. Easy with names and contact info, but reticent about the details. Understandable. Like most legends, he’s a modest guy, still working in the trenches, now on a project here with NAACP. A memorable evening.
