Zellner Blog: “About Me
Bob Zellner
On November 4, 2008 Barack Hussein Obama was elected the 44th president of the United States, making history and eliminating the last racial barrier in politics. Less than fifty years ago, Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered arguably the most famous speech in American history in which he spoke of an America where his children ‘will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.’ We are witnessing today the single greatest impact of the Civil Rights Movement on this country. How did we get here? And who are the revolutionaries who brought us here? One such pioneer was Bob Zellner. The son and grandson of Klansmen, Zellner went on to become the first white southerner to serve as a field secretary for the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). His life a virtual roadmap of social responsibility, Zellner served the Civil Rights Movement tirelessly and has dedicated his life to protesting on behalf of social change and equal rights.”
