Jet correspondent Simeon Booker tells of his front-line reporting on the war for Civil Rights
Simeon Booker is a lucky man. He has lived to enjoy the spoils of victory.
On the sandy shores of the Chesapeake at Cove Point in southern Calvert County, the 94-year-old has enjoyed 30 years of the best the Bay has to offer. He has basked in water just outside his cottage windows, miles of beach walking, fishing, the solace of nature, the company of neighbors and friends … even the luxury of a new septic system supported in part by the Bay Restoration Fund.
