I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Dow the past week and working with his wonderful wife Kathy Dow on a movie called Payin The Price. I did not know him well but he was loved and respected by his family and he just had the look and attitude of the coolest man on the planet. I would like to send my love and heartfelt condolences to Kathy and Danica Dow and the rest of his children in their time of tremendous need. To the legendary Mr. Harold Dow, your great work will never be forgotten and we thank you for constantly paving the way for black journalists to succeed at the highest levels. You will be sorely missed.
Here is just but one of the great pieces of journalism from Mr. Harold Dow about the legacy of Medgar Evers and President Barack Obama.
As Barack Obama becomes the first African American U.S. president, CBS News’ Harold Dow highlights the life of Medgar Evers, a black civil rights activist who was assassinated in the 1960s.
