Fields with Song

This image comes from a story that never made it into the paper. Uriah J. Fields, a local musician and civil rights leader, belts out a song while visiting central place on the downtown mall. Fields is a mall regular and known for his singing. According to Ace from the Cville- Fields served as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s secretary during the Montgomery Bus Boycott of 1955-56 (about which Fields later wrote a book, Inside the Montgomery Bus Boycott) and fought in the battlefields of the Korean War. He’s one of many interesting characters here in beautiful Charlottesville, VA.
