Mrs. Annie Washington book
This chapter presents an interview of Mrs. Annie Washington, resides in Pickens, Mississippi. She was a young black child who tried to integrate a white school in the 60's in Goodman, a neighboring town of Pickens. Her current occupation is as elementary school librarian at Goodman-Pickens Elementary School. She is someone who really stands out among people because of her courage and determination. While the national Movement has been painted in broad strokes by journalists and scholars, the experiences of ordinary people bring definition to the lived texture of the Civil Rights Movement. Interviewed by local youths, Movement veterans recount how they overcame their fear in the face of terrorist resistance and collectively transformed the political and social fabric of their community.
