Drove from Houston to Baton Rouge. From Louisiana to Hernando, Mississippi. Had a free day and drove to Memphis. Drove over to Arkansas and back. Drove to Lafayette. Now in Houston.
Took a moment at this monument for a man who could not swim, but could pilot a boat. He bravely rescued a bunch of people when a luxury boat sank. He was black, so it was particularly noteworthy (apparently).
I wondered if the folks in Memphis were at all uncomfortable with the wording of the monument. Negro. Worthy Negro. A Very Worthy Negro. Well done Zev.
