FEATURED SPEAKER: Joyce Ladner (Tougaloo College Activist)
Joyce and Dorie Ladnerís parents were like many African American parents in that they understood how to survive under Jim Crow and who constantly worried about the welfare of their children. Nevertheless, the Ladners taught their children not to accept insult and, in their own way, acted as a supportive rearguard. NAACP Mississippi Field Secretary Medger Evers was a profound influence on both Ladner sisters. Joyce Ladner traces her roots in the tiny Black community of Palmers Crossing to civil rights activism.
