About This Book
Overview

Joan Trumphauer Mulholland grew up in Virginia in the 1950s and witnessed the injustice of segregation firsthand. As a teenager, she joined the Civil Rights Movement, attending demonstrations and sit-ins. Because of her passionate belief in the cause, she was involved in several important and historically significant events, including

The Freedom Rides of 1961
The Woolworth’s lunch counter sit-ins in Jackson, Mississippi in 1963
The March on Washington with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1963
The Selma to Montgomery March in 1965

Joan says, “Anyone can make a difference. It doesn’t matter how old or young you are. Find a problem, get some friends together, and go fix it. Remember, you don’t have to change the world…just change your world.”

Filled with original photography, images of historical documents, and breathtaking artwork, She Stood for Freedom is a celebration of the effect a single life can have on the world.
