From the excellent “If Charlie Parker Was a Gunslinger,
There’d Be a Whole Lot of Dead Copycats”
“(Atlanta) restaurant owner Lester Maddox autographs an axe handle for Charles Taylor 8/12, as Maddox continued his defiance of a Federal court order to desegregate. He later was served with an order show cause (by 8/20) why he should not be cited for contempt for refusing service to Negroes 8/11. The axe handles, used effectively to thwart a trio of Negroes seeking service at the Pickrick several weeks ago, have now become souvenirs.”
These sentiments are not as faded in the A as one would hope.
