Before the Memories Fade: Ernest Holsendolph

Ernest Holsendolph is a retired print reporter who spoke with me at his Atlanta home on May 30. Ernest and I talked about his experiences while being a black reporter in the 60s and his coverage of the riots in Washington, D.C., after Dr. King's assassination.

Ernest's interview was as you could expect . . . very informative. After the camera was off, we both shared personal stories about our journalistic endeavors. It was my last interview of the day, so I quickly packed up and headed the 5 hours back to Lexington, K.Y.
