I had the opportunity to interview Dr. Gerald Durley Wednesday, one of the honorees in the National Park Service Civil Rights Hall of Fame.
The Georgia senator I interviewed about Dr. Durley was thrilled that I was writing about him. She said virtually no one does.
She was right, and I found it to be a little bizarre. When I tried to do background research on Dr. Durley before the interview, information was hard to come by.
I think this was one of the the best (if not the best) interviews I have ever done and the same goes for the story.
Another great thing about this trip is that I had the opportunity to write stories I am actually proud of.
