Remembering Chattanooga's Rev. Paul A. McDaniel
Here in Chattanooga, he served - for decades as pastor at Second Missionary Baptist Church, as a leader for civil rights and as a Hamilton County Commissioner.
The Rev. Paul A. McDaniel died this past weekend at the age of 91.
Earlier this year, he spoke with us here on “Scenic Roots” during our series of conversations about Ed Johnson, who was lynched on the Walnut Street Bridge in 1906.
Rev. McDaniel recounted Johnson’s baptism at the Hamilton County Jail.
Listen to the rest of our conversation with him here.
Next month, the Ed Johnson Memorial will be dedicated here in Chattanooga, near the Walnut Street Bridge.
