We spent some time in the company of human rights/ice cream lovers (and TB fans) Robert and Jeannie Graetz at their home in Montgomery, Alabama (above: Jeannie seated far left, Robert far right). The two (along with their children, Metta is seated to Robert's right) are lifelong civil rights/human rights activists and local legends!!! They were good friends of MLK, Jr., a friend and neighbor of Rosa Parks, were instrumental in helping execute the Montgomery bus boycott, and helped organize King's poor people's March/campaign in DC!

We were given an earful of a history lesson from them last night! First person accounts! Incredible stuff!!!
Learn more from them below.
