In this oral history interview, Joan Mulholland discusses the items she donated from the Civil Rights Movement that reflect her life of activism, including her involvement in SNCC. She also discusses her choice to attend the HBCU Tougaloo College in Jackson, Mississippi, as a white woman, and the response of her parents to her choices and political activities.
