He did voter-registration work, sit-ins at restaurants, and recreational facilities, conducted training seminars, and demonstrated in support for freedom, equality, justice, and human rights for blacks in the American South.

He was subjected to harassments, intimidations, chased around at high rates of speed, arrested, disowned by relatives, his life was constantly threatened, and he was forced to leave his hometown in 1965.

He returned to Madison in 1993 to set up an after school program to assist the youth of Madison County to do well in school, to stay in school, reduce teenage pregnancy, resist drug use, reduce criminal behavior, and violence.
