Curtis Flowers, the Council of Conservative Citizens and questions about justice in the "Rolling Stones." I supplied some information to the writer.

I supplied the information about Doug Evans' attendance at the Council of Conservative Citizens,, for this article
Then why Flowers? Dianna Freelon-Foster, former mayor of Grenada, a town in Evans' judicial district, pins the blame squarely on the district attorney: "I think he's a racist white supremacist," she says. Strong words, but Evans does have a history on race. In 1991, he delivered the keynote address at a Webster County meeting of the Council of Conservative Citizens, a neo-segregationist organization that opposes, according to its current mission statement, "all efforts to mix the races of mankind [and] to promote non-white races over the European-American people through so-called 'affirmative action.'" In 1992, Evans attended a CCC address delivered by Robert "Tut" Patterson, the notorious segregationist who founded the White Citizens Council to fight school desegregation. The CCC's newsletter reported Evans' attendance at both events. (Evans did not respond to Rolling Stone's request for comment for this story.)

Having collected the Citizen Informer back issues and having carefully indexed them, I am able to look through issues and find information when I get inquiries. It makes it all worthwhile.
