I was actively involved with the Sumter County Movement in the 60'S. I became involved after attending mass meetings with my grandmother, Mrs. Elnora Pitts, who was the second licensed Black female insurance agent in our county, my mother, the first.

I was locked up in the Leesburg stockade for 45 days, and we were feathred in the Essence Magazine as the "Stolen girls" of Americuc, Georgia.

I graduated from Americus High School in 1967 under Freedom of Choice, one of the first three Blacks to graduate from Americus High School. The first three Blacks to graduate were: Robertina Freeman (Fletcher), Bessie Walton, and me, Emmarene Kaigler (Streeter).
