    This story is remarkable. I think often times as young people we feel so displaced for the events of the Civil Rights Movement. This episode allows us to humanize victims of the violence brought to African Americans during the movement. I thank you for your graceful responses and sharing the bright life of Philip Gibbs.

    Ms. Dale Gibbs is a strong, accomplished, dignified woman whose sharing of her story helps those of us who knew Phillip and who survived that night heal a bit more. Thank you so much for the touching account of your experience, and may God continue to bless you and your family.
