The Real Citizens Council

Andrew Sullivan excerpts a post from Sue Fishkoff at the Jewish Telegraph Agency about an encounter between Martin Luther King, Jr. and a Rabbi in Georgia in 1962. In the excerpt, the rabbi recalls being trapped in a house in Atlanta surrounded by "hundreds of members of the local White Citizens Council."

Recall my post last month about Haley Barbour's fond recollection of the very same organization in Mississippi as one that enabled a peaceful integration of his hometown's schools.

Which one do you think is the real WCC?
