Aaron Buchsbaum died on April 12th at the age of 83. Our condolences to Esther and the entire Buchsbaum Family. Aaron was a great man. A Tybee resident. He was a friend a resource and an inspiration to the formation TybeeMLK.
Back In the 60’s he was involved in the desegregation of Savannah’s educational system working with W.W. Law. When Edna Jackson and other were thrown in jail for wading on Tybee beach, Aaron was their lawyer. Aaron was a man of principle,commitment, passion and peaceful strength. Not only will Tybee and Savannah miss Aaron Buchsbaum, the world has lost a great humanitarian.
