While Ken is traveling on the Civil Rights Tour, he's replaying some of his top podcasts. He's also asking you to check in with your thoughts on the celebration of his 200th Episode.
d Kale, M.Div., 1963 professional kayaker, was a student at Yale Divinity School in 1961 when a generous professor funded is participation in a Freedom Ride to Jackson, MS. He was arrested, put in jail along with other men and women, black and white. Because the jails were full, he and the others (including the famed William Sloan Coffin), were transferred to the Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman. Ken met Ed while kayaking on Lake Superior - and then met at the historic Old Rittenhouse Inn in Bayfield, WI for an interview. They talked about their experience as seminarians, and then Ed's journey which includes his friendship with James Farmer (the civil rights champion who organized the Freedom Rides), Carol Ruth Silver (author and fellow Freedom Rider) and the incomparable author and philosopher James Baldwin. Learn more about Ed Kale in our SHOW NOTES.
