James Paschal - The Man Who Feed The Civil Rights Movement - Passes Away

AJC: James Paschal, 88, started eatery that fed Civil Rights movement

James Vaughn Paschal, whose Atlanta restaurant served the fried chicken that nourished the soldiers of the civil rights movement, died Friday from complications of heart surgery at Piedmont Hospital. He was 88.

The funeral will be 11 a.m. Friday at the Martin Luther King Jr. International Chapel at Morehouse College. Murray Brothers Funeral Home is handling arrangements.

This franchise has moved from selling fried chicken on "MLK Jr Blvd" over to selling baked chicken in its more upscale location on Northside Drive. The dream is alive.
