Judy Wright and Julie Kabat have overlapping stories to tell about the Civil Rights Movement in the crucial years of the early 1960’s. By looking back at the past, they hope to inform and inspire anyone who wants to understand what is happening concerning issues of race today.\nJudith Frieze Wright is the author of ACTS OF RESISTANCE: A Freedom Rider Looks Back on the Civil Rights Movement. She became a Freedom Rider and was jailed in Mississippi in 1961. Later, in the fall of 1964 just after Freedom Summer, she went with her husband Sib to Meridian, Mississipppi where they worked for a year in the Civil Rights Movement. She is a visual artist who lives in Gloucester, MA.  \nJulie Kabat is the author of LOVE LETTER FROM PIG: My Brother’s Story of Freedom Summer. For most of her career, she worked both as an avant-garde composer/performer who toured nationally and abroad, and also as a teaching artist in inner city and rural schools. She is a resident of North Chatham and longtime trustee of the North Chatham Free Library. \nJulie’s oldest brother Luke was a medical student who volunteered as a Freedom School teacher in Meridian, MS during the summer.
