In 1959, Miss Eddie Mae Herron McDonald, an African American teacher just wanted to take her students on a field trip to the Memphis Zoo. Under the threats of violence and degrading language, the police disrupted their lunch and ran them out of Overton Park. Then they were turned away at the gates of the Memphis Zoo because it was not colored day. Ms. Eddie Mae, as her students called her, contacted a stranger to tell about the horror and help make sense of it. The visit with Rev. Charles McDonald, a young white Methodist minister, would impact his life forever.
