McLaurin, Griffin

Political organizer who assisted Robert Clark in his run for the State Legislature in Holmes County. Elected Constable of Beat Four in Covington County. He then had to work under Sheriff Calvin Moore, the same man that refused to allow him to register to vote. Moore refused to inform McLaurin of his duties as constable. Instead he had to travel to Jackson and read the Mississippi Code in order to learn how to serve his people.
