It seemed to be in the air. How many 'Freedom suites' were written? Mingus was just as or more irascible than others. And who's to say he was wrong?

Delightful article, thanks for the info and the chance to comment.

I happened to be living in Montgomery, Alabama, the year of the Bus Boycott, of Rosa Parks and ascending Dr. King. I well remember the people stolidly, stubbornly walking everywhere, albeit sometimes given lifts by passing cars (including my parents' Studebaker). Jazz musicians have addressed so much of the Civil Rights era in music. Has the Bus Boycott, arguably the first salvo following the Brown school decision, ever made it straightforwardly onto record and into the history of Jazz?

Contrary to Brian Priestley, the names that Dannie Richmond rattles off are intelligible. Here is the complete cast of villains, along with their curricula vitae: (1) Theodore G. Bilbo (1877-1947), U.S. Senator (D-Mississippi), 1935-1947. (2) J. Parnell Thomas (1895-1970), U.S. Representative (R-New Jersey), 1937-1950. (3) Orval E. Faubus (1910-1994), Governor (D-Arkansas), 1955-1967. (4) Richard B. Russell, Jr. (1897-1971), U.S. Senator (D-Georgia), 1933-1971. (5) Nelson A. Rockefeller (1908-1979), Governor (R-New York), 1959-1973. (6) Harry F. Byrd (1887-1966), U.S. Senator (D-Virginia), 1933-1965. (7) Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890-1969), U.S. President (R), 1953–1961.

Interesting and well written post. You really captured my heart. Now I do understand more how music is related to our lives.
