"I wasn’t saved to run." —Fred Shuttlesworth
The Reverend Fred Shuttlesworth, pictured in front of the remains of his Birmingham, Alabama home. It was bombed on Christmas Day, 1956. Attempts on his life and the lives of his family members, beatings and numerous arrests never stopped this warrior from carrying the banner of freedom and justice. In Alabama, they called him “Black Moses”.
Rest in peace and rise in glory, Rev. Shuttlesworth.
