I was active in Americus Georgia and Sumter County working with SCOPE on voter registration. One of my tasks was to mount a loudspeaker on my VW and lead the voting rights march to the county courthouse every day. I was humbled by the leadership and strength of the local activists in Sumter County, who put their lives on the line every time they marched, protested or even left the black community.
