Response to marble falls (Original post)

Thu Apr 25, 2019, 08:52 PM

28. Thank you for posting this.


I'm close to the same age but lived in the west at that time. She and a few others had some national publicity and great admiration from folks following the incidents. (News was of course slow and limited at that time.) It still boggles the mind to think what courage she and other freedom riders showed, flat walking into deadly situations. I'm in awe of her dedication across the years.

By coincidence, I became a grad student at Cornell and attended the memorial service for the 3 students mentioned. What a sacrifice and what a horrible event in our history.
