Frances Montgomery Steele

SNCC, 1963-65, Alabama
Current Residence: Columbus, GA

I was born and raised in Selma. I am now 60 yrs. It is my honor to share a snapshot; as a result of being a participant in the Civil Rights Movement.

My mother, Oneida, voted at the firestation on Broad St [Selma].

Schools: St. Elizabeth Catholic & St.Jude High (City of St. Jude).

I attended MASS MEETINGS at Browns Chapel and Tabernacle Baptist. Dick Gregory & training at SNCC office in Montgomery St. Jude student walkout and more. Looking up at George Wallace (quick prayer) as we sang Ain't gonna let nobody, turn me around and other songs.

I marched on 3-21-65 to the first campsite. Met the marchers at St. Judes a few days later. Then, marched on the Capitol the next day! My feelings are overwhelming!

I am proud of the museums & monuments that my family and I visited 6-18-2011 in Selma (HOME).
