She Stood For Freedom: Joan Trumpauer Mulholland

by: Loki Mulholland

She Stood For Freedom: The Untold Story of a Civil Rights Hero, Joan Trumpauer Mulholland

Joan Trumpauer Mulholland was a little girl in the 1950s. When she saw that black people were being treated differently than white people, she promised herself that she would do something to change that. As a teenager, she joined the Civil Rights Movement and protested the injustice she saw around her.

During the 1960s, Joan attended many demonstrations and sit-ins, she protested at a Woolworth’s lunch counter, and she participated in several organized marches, including the March on Washington, with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Though she was threatened, arrested, and mocked, she held true to her promise to make the world a better place for everyone. “Anyone can make a difference,” she says. “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.”
