By Joe Shifalo:
Some knew him as Joe Shifalo, activist, war on poverty warrior, a lawyer who fought housing discrimination, and founder of the Little Five Points Community Center … Many others knew him as Pigiron, finger-picking Piedmont-style blues master, and spinner of blues records and Southern tales of his making over WRFG (89.3 FM). I knew him as both – and more– as he was my husband and we were together 33 years. He went the way of “a poor chile born to die” this time last year. But before he did, he wrote one more short piece, which I attach, hopefully for your reading pleasure. — Christena Bledsoe
