Launch Party with CAROL RUTH SILVER at Books Inc. Opera Plaza
Retired lawyer, activist, and former elected official Carol Ruth Silver
celebrates the launch of Freedom Rider Diary: Smuggled Notes from Parchman Prison
, her moving story of being one of the first white women to be jailed in the Freedom Rides of 1961 in Mississippi. Chronicling the events of her arrest, and time in prison, on scraps of paper she was amazingly able to smuggle out, this is a raw look at a tumultuous time in our nation's history that waited unread for more than fifty years.
