Rodney Lawrence Hurst Sr. returns to talk about the killing of Ahmaud Arbery and our long history of racial violence. Rodney has done so much to illuminate and educate people across the spectrum and is a fierce but kind warrior of truth.
He is also a fantastic writer with multiple books. It Was Never About a Hot Dog and a Coke®! is subtitled “A Personal
Account of the 1960 Sit-in Demonstrations in Jacksonville, Florida and Ax Handle Saturday”. It is Hurst’s personal eyewitness account, as President of the Jacksonville Florida Youth Council NAACP, of the events leading up to, and the fallout from, the bloody events of August 27, 1960. On that day, 200 ax handle and baseball bat wielding whites attacked members of the Jacksonville Youth Council NAACP, who were “sitting-in” at white lunch counters in downtown Jacksonville peacefully protesting segregation.
