A Tribute To the Freaknik Lawyer
Greetings Mr. Harvey, educator, coach, baseball legend, author, journalist, lawyer, defender, organizer, trailblazer, CIVIL RIGHTS ACTIVISTS, my hero and so many wonderful things to so many people.
I am honored to have met you. Thank you for your selfless service and contributions to our community. Thanks for sharing yourself and talents with the world.
I thank you for defending all of those kids during Freaknik who did not deserve to be arrested.
I hope you are very proud of your accomplishments because you should be. I am!
Freaknik Lawyer: A Memoir on the Craft of Resistance is an excellent book.
It is my prayer that God blesses you and your family real good forevermore.
