She never said much directly but she exemplified values that I carry with me. She was a single parent in the early 1950’s. She was a working mother when no other mothers (I knew) worked outside the house. No car? Take buses when they were segregated and we were the only white people on board.
Hard work; independence of thought and spirit; making do with what you have; and being committed to supporting others socially and politically. Core values that are with me every day.
