White Protest March

White protest march dated March 22, 1965 on the city parking lot near the location where the Jacksonville Landing now stands.  Warren Folks is leading the march with a sign that reads ‘This Small White March is in Protest of the Big Black March in Alabama’.  This would have been three days before the approximately 2,000 civil rights marchers arrived in Montgomery, Alabama after walking from Selma, the site of brutal attacks on protesters.

I remember talking with Warren on a number of occasions when I would run into him around downtown Jacksonville in the late 1980′s and 1990′s.  He was never shy about sharing his opinions.  Haven’t seen him in quite a few years…

    I think he was destitute but he died while living in Public Housing, integrated Public Housing.

    Having hate in your heart is no way to live. He got what he deserved in the end. I say poetic justice.
