(#2807) John F (Atlanta, GA)
Sept 1979 in Atlanta, GA  EVENT: Easy Does It 25th Anniversary  TYPE: AA, Male, Story

Sober 37 years since 2/23/1952, John was one of the first African American members of AA in Georgia.

I grew up in Atlanta and am inspired by how many AAs welcomed him with open arms.

It was not universal, but it seems to have been above and beyond the standards of the culture in the city at that time.

NOTE: I have hesitated to add this to the collection because the recording cuts off after 1 hour and 5 minutes. I felt it better to add this incomplete version than to not share it with the world. The recording has been enhanced for clarity.
