Fighting for Civil Rights in Hattiesburg, MS in 1965

Voter registration, integration of swimming pool and University of Southern Mississippi, set up summer day camp for children in Hattiesburg community. My most memorable event was my first day as a CWR with the Movement, when the courthouse had to dismiss the case of one of our freedom workers because nobody knew what to do with me (since I was Chinese and I refused to move to the Colored-only section or to the White-only section of the courtroom).

I am a community college counselor serving students who are economically- and educationally-disadvantaged, at the City College of San Francisco. I am also a consultant in Intercultural Communications.
