Volume 26: Joyce Ladner is introduced by her sister Dorie Ladner. Both were deeply involved with SNCC in Mississippi. Joyce and Dorie's parents were like many African American parents in that they understood how to survive under Jim Crow and constantly worried about the welfare of their children. Nevertheless, the Ladners taught their children not to accept insult and, in their own way, acted as a supportive rearguard. NAACP Mississippi Field Secretary Medgar Evers was a profound influence on both Ladner sisters. Joyce Ladner traces her roots in the tiny Black community of Palmers Crossing to civil rights activism.
