(From the New York Times, March 19, 2011) Worcy Crawford died in July at age 90, leaving a graveyard of decaying buses behind his house on the outskirts of Birmingham. His private coaches do not have the panache of the city buses that the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.refused to ride. But they have significance nonetheless. Their cracked windows and rusting engines thick with brambles are remnants of something that was quite rare in the South: a bus company owned by an African-American.
