CORE, Freedom Rider, Mississippi, 1961-64
Current Residence: New York, NY

I went to Mississippi at the age of 19 to be a Freedom Rider. Met some wonderful people, learned a lot about myself and my country, and felt like I had participated in history. 40 women in a cell in the Hinds County jail and 3 in a cell in maximum security in Parchman Penitentiary are some of the strongest, most important memories of my life. How lucky I was to be able to be a part of it.
