Rodney Hurst is a civil rights activist, a black historian, and the author of two award-winning books. He joins Hurley and Jenna on Completely Booked to tell the real history of the bloody events of August 27, 1960, when 200 whites with ax handles and baseball bats attacked members of the Jacksonville, Florida Youth Council NAACP who were demonstrating peaceably at White lunch counters in downtown Jacksonville. This event is now known as Axe Handle Saturday.
