We are still searching for details, such as where and when, but we have it on good authority that the 95-year-old Rev. Joseph Lowery, one of the greatest surviving voices of the Civil Rights era, intends to endorse Atlanta City Council President Ceasar Mitchell for mayor on Wednesday.

In a November race that could be highly fractured along racial lines, that’s pretty big stuff.
