Sue Sojourner Presentation at Jones-Harrison

We were honored to have author Sue Sojourner discuss and read from her civil rights focused book, Thunder of Freedom. The book relates Sue’s personal experiences and insights on race relations in the 1960’s South, and the struggle for rights and equality in Mississippi.  Sue’s acclaimed photographs are included in the book that tells the powerful, often intimate stories of ordinary people who accomplished extraordinary things.  Sue was joined by her co-author Cheryl Reitan, who has developed a screen play based on the novel.

Sue reads excerpts from her book, Thunder of Freedom, to the residents of Jones-Harrison.
