|Joan Trumpauer Mulholland (2013)|
'An Ordinary Hero' is the story of Joan Trumpauer Mulholland, a little known Civil Rights worker who did the extraordinary.
As a 19 year old college student in 1961, Joan had already participated in nearly three dozen protests and sit-ins when she was arrested for participating in the Freedom Rides. After spending two months at the infamous Parchman Penitentiary on death row she transferred from Duke University to historically black Tougaloo Southern Christian College because she felt integration should be a two way street. She became one of the first white woman to join the Delta Sigma Theta sorority.
