Fred Shuttlesworth's Courage


Video of the Whitsitt Society presenting civil rights leader Fred Shuttlesworth its Courage and Freedom award. The award was presented on June 19, 2008 at the meeting of the Whitsitt Society in Memphis, TN.

After a brief exerpt from a video (the sound is bad, but the video is clear), Shuttlesworth's biographer, Andrew Manis (pictured above), speaks (sound is good) before former Mercer University president Kirby Godsey presents the award.
