I was driving along the Selma to Montgomery route of the historic Civil Rights march in 1966. Met this gentlemen who had a soda vending machine on his porch. Talked to him for a while when the local neighborhood muscle / patriarch came by and gave me a choice: Leave or I’ll bust your camera and bust your face.

Good times.

I left.
