Richardson, Judy (1944–)

Richardson worked with the SNCC for three years in the 1960s in Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi. Richardson joined the Swarthmore Political Action Committee in college, and in 1963 spent her weekends assisting the Cambridge, MD community in desegregating public accommodations. Later in life, she produced documentaries and books about the civil rights movement, including Eyes on the Prize, Malcolm X: Make It Plain, and Hands on the Freedom Plow: Personal Accounts by Women in SNCC, which includes 52 memoirs of women bravely working for civil rights in the 1960s.
