On a day celebrating Martin Luther King, writer and photographer Matt Witt reviews a memoir by another African American from Georgia who also had a day named after him. The memoir is called Chasing Me to My Grave by Winfred Rembert. Growing up in rural Georgia, Rembert nearly died from a lynching after joining a demonstration for voting rights. He served seven years on a prison chain gang, but eventually became a nationally recognized artist who painted scenes from his life.
