Thread Name: Tell me about Si Kahn...
Subject: RE: Tell me about Si Kahn...
O.k., I just missed the chance to get it from the horse's mouth: we had Si here for a concert last night. In some of the publicity and in speaking to people I've been spreading the Norma Rae story -- except that today I find in this copy of a Washington Post article that some other organizer is cited by Cyrstal Lee Sutton as being the original behind the movie character. The presence of this other organizer doesn't preclude Si's being around at the time, but...!

Was it all a folk myth? Roger in Baltimore, what have you to say for yourself??
