Civil Rights Activist Bob Zellner On Thursday's Access Utah

Patheos

Robert Zellner is a civil rights activist and original Freedom Rider. The Alabama-born son and grandson of Ku Klux Klan members, Zellner has devoted his life to building relationships across color lines. In 1963, he was a young organizer of the March on Washington, which gave us Martin Luther's King "I Have a Dream" speech. He describes his 50-plus year career in the memoir The Wrong Side of Murder Creek: A White Southerner in the Freedom Movement.

Robert Zellner will be at Utah State University as part of the Tanner Talks series October 5 in the Eccles Science Learning Center Room 136 at 7:00 p.m..
