Description: Born and raised with his four siblings in a small wooden shack in White Hall, Virginia, Reverend Luck moved to Esmont in 1955 after marrying Mrs. Nancy (Ward) Luck. In the interview Reverend Luck recalls key moments in his life, including his service in the U.S. Army and the 13 months he spent in Germany during the Korean War. He describes his experiences working in construction around Charlottesville and being overcome by the Spirit, an experience that led to his religious rebirth. Significantly, Reverend Luck reflects on the ways his life has been formed and his outlook shaped by his being an African-American man living in the South during and after the Jim Crow era.
