On a trip to the neighboring towns of Florence and Muscle Shoals in Alabama, I felt privileged to be introduced to Tom Hendrix. Tom had the most powerful and moving story to tell, which I was delighted to share with readers on BBC Travel.
On a visit to Birmingham in Alabama I was lucky enough to be there on a Saturday night and got taken to Gip’s Place. It was an amazing experience to visit what is one of the last juke joints in the USA. I was so bowled over by it that I knew I had to write about it, and fortunately sold the story to BBC Travel.
