Sue [Lorenzi] Sojourner is a veteran of the Civil Rights Movement. She
worked in Holmes County, Mississippi from 1964 to 1969. She is now writing
a memoir entitled “FREEDOM: Blacks Transforming Themselves —
Growing a Grassroots Movement in the 1960s Mississippi as Seen by One
(Transformed) White Middle-Class Outside Agitator.” It tells of
the real dangers and fears that local leaders experienced and how they
built one of the most effective grassroots Movements in the state.
