This epilogue traces the personal stories of key characters in the years after 1965. John H. McCray was offered editing positions at several black newspapers in the early 1960s, but the black press had begun to decline dramatically by that time. He left South Carolina and moved to Alabama to take a job at his alma mater, Talladega College. As editors of South Carolina two largest white newspapers, Thomas R. Waring, Jr., and William D. Workman, Jr. continued to oppose the new, bi-racial coalition that emerged in the Democratic Party. Modjeska Simkins appeared weekly on a black radio station in Columbia to help organize and register black voters in South Carolina. She and McCray remained estranged despite their history together launching the modern civil rights movement in the state.

Keywords:   John H. McCray, Modjeska Simkins, civil rights, NAACP, Thomas R. Waring Jr., William D. Workman Jr., southern politics, Republican Party, Democratic Party, South Carolina history
