Memories of the March

Joan Nelson

Clip | 4m 1s

Joan Nelson found the path to her own personal freedom at the age of 14. Her entire family was made up of civil rights activists and they have all been arrested for participating in non-violent sit ins and demonstrations. “I am a Soldier” she says, she is also here to bare witness to the past without allowing anyone to become too complacent about the future.
