James Bevel publicized on satirical site
Uncyclopedia ^ | March 1, 2012 | BlueStateBlues

Although uncyclopedia is a satirical site, this page on James Bevel, which is featured on its main page today, looks like it contains a great deal of information on the civil rights movement leader whom I've had an interest in for several years. Some historians claim James Bevel was Dr. Martin Luther King's equal in the 1960s movement, and if that's true (and I suspect it is) then that fact has been largely ignored in the public media and even in histories of the period. Although Bevel was another minister convicted of incest as an older man (what is it about men of the cloth and children, even their own?), when he was a young firebrand he was a dynamic and pivotal leader in that movement. He later ran for Congress as a Republican, which may explain why he is so ignored.

There is also a wikipedian page on James Bevel, and it looks like some of the Uncyclopedian article is taken from there.

And here’s (http://cfm40.middlebury.edu/node/287) another link to a page on James Bevel.

I wonder what his incest-surviving daughter thought of the satirical article which is the subject of this thread. Probably not much.
