Darby studied to become a Unitarian Universalist minister. He is a human rights activist who was active in the anti-war movement during the Vietnam conflict, an anti-racism activist who grew up in a very racist environment, and he is founder of Food Not Bombs in Atlanta. He is the host of "Bob Darby, Homeless Advocacy" show on the "Human Rights Demand" channel at Blogtalkradio every Thursday at 3pmEST (when we are not prevented from going on air).
As soon the censorship stops, which we experience at Blogtalkradio, Bob Darby plans to invite many of his friends to his weekly programs at "Human Rights Demand," including people from the Vietnam anti-war movement, Harvard and other Ivy League colleges and universities, and people who advocate against racism like Darby does, as well as his "Food Not Bombs" colleagues.
Darby's memoir will soon be published. Like the movie "Forest Gump" and the book, "Having Our Say," by the Delaney Sisters, Darby's memoir parallels many important national news events over decades from the standpoint of an exceptional young white man who came of age in the Deep South during the civil rights movement and during the USA's last military conflict when the draft was employed.
MaryLovesJustice met Darby during a "Save Troy Davis" rally sponsored by Amnesty International. "How could I hate black people when my second mother, the woman who helped raise me, was black?" Darby asked.
The photo of Darby above was taken at the 2015 Selma, Alabama "Bloody Sunday" commemorative activities. He also was among activists who traveled to Alabama after the first "Bloody Sunday" march. Darby has been against racism all of his life. Darby was also among hundreds of Caucasian students attending Ivy League colleges and universities who came to the rescue of hundreds of sharecropper families when they were evicted from their homes in the 1960's for trying to register to vote in Fayette County, Tennessee, which is my home area.
Read about the causes of the first lawsuit filed under the Civil Rights Act of 1966, which originated from Fayette County area of Tennessee and its Tent City protesters at the link below this paragraph. The sharecroppers' protest would have been less successful without leaders like Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., donations from sympathetic whites in the nation's labor unions, and white liberals like Bob Darby from Northern colleges and universities. Unity was key to seriously wounding Jim Crow during the civil rights movement, and that is no less true now.
