Remembering Their Dreams

January 23, 1986

Chauffeur Ozell Roberson of Los Angeles is a car buff whose collection of customized cars and car parts is dedicated to the civil rights movement and its leaders, especially Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and President John F. Kennedy. He designed and completed most of the custom work himself, but hired professionals to help him with the upholstery. "It's a message to the world, my way of sharing the philosophy of King and those who fought so desperately in the 1950s and 1960s," Roberson said.
