    Hi Michael! What an amazing thing you are doing! I wanted to follow you because I was born and raised in Palo Alto, CA and you are at Standford. I am truly in awe of of what you and all the others are doing. I am 62 now, and back during the 60′s I went to Palo Alto High School and did not realize there was segregation. My family never mentioned the subject, there wasn’t any racist talk in my house. I knew about East Palo Alto and on some level knew there were African Americans there, but my school was all white. Then one day a new student was in a class with me. Her name was Nola Brown and I never forgot her name to this day. I saw a few other African Americans around the school, but I had no idea that integration was happening…..busing a few kids from E. Palo Alto. It wasn’t until many years later that I found out what had been going on. I admire your commitment and wish you all the best in your journey. It takes VERY special people to do the Freedom Ride and I feel proud to know you (even though we have never met!) Enjoy and I hope it might make a difference for our world. Sue
