Saunders was a student at U of D Law School, when he was asked to return to Florida and become Field Director there for the NAACP. He became "Mr. Civil Rights" in the state between 1952 and 1965 and was involved in many key cases and protests, often endangering his own life.  Professor of History Roy E.
