So like I said, I’m sitting in the library looking at older Bullets. Here’s what I got:
April 9th, 1985: Civil Rights Activist Speaks Farmer Remembers Struggles
Huge front cover picture, this is the first Farmer story I think. (Pg 1, 5)
” The old and the young, the white and the black all managed to step outside of themselves to find something to believe in.”
“I risked what I did to improve the nation. We wanted to make what we loved better and make it more deserving of that love.”
“I was scared all the time in the 60s and anyone who wasn’t, was a liar or totally without imagination.”
September 17, 1985: New Professors Join MWC Ranks (pg. 9)
no picture, just a short blurb about Farmer, says he taught at Lincoln University in PA, NYU and Antioch University (no dates). Also says his lectures are entitled ” The History of the Civil Rights Movement in the Twentieth Century.”
January 28, 1986: Civil Rights Leader to Speak in Dodd (pg 3)
Farmer organized for Ralph Abernathy of the SCLC to speak and it talks about Farmer travelling and speaking around MLK day.
November 18, 1986: WNVT to Air Farmer Series(pg 2)
Info about the “Civil Rights LEaders” 3-part series w/ interviews by Farmer
January 27, 1987:Farmer Doing Better (pg 2)
Apparently Farmer suffered a heart attack Jan 19, 1987 right after an MLK speech at Antioch University. Says he teaches one class at MWC that semester.
ok on a sidenote- April 19, 1988 Dog Saves Drunken Crawley
Crawley got wasted and fell out of a tree with panties on his head. No joke.
i’ll be a little late to our meeting…
