Flying Black Medics Project…
One of his volunteer projects of which he is very proud, is the “Flying Black Medics,” who, in 1970, flew into Cairo, Ill. at the invitation of the Rev. Charles Koen, executive director, United Front, and brought medical care and supplies to poor blacks who were being discriminated against in the southern Illinois town. in the photo, circa 1970, are (from left) the Rev. Charles Koen, Dr. Berry, Leon Page, United Front; and the Rev. M. T. Harrell, Ward Chapel A.M.E Church, Cairo.
