I was provided with a complimentary copy of “She Stood for Freedom: The Untold Story of a Civil Rights Hero, Joan Trumpauer Mulholland.” All opinions are my own.
During the early 1960s, a white teenager living in the South named Joan Trumpauer Mulholland became immersed in the Civil Rights struggle. She organized non-violent sit-ins, attended Tougaloo College (a predominately black college) & participated in protests including the March on Washington and the Selma to Montgomery March.
Readers of all ages can now learn about her courageous acts in She Stood for Freedom: The Untold Story of a Civil Rights Hero, Joan Trumpauer Mulholland, which was co-written by her son, Loki Mullholland and Angela Fairwell.
