The Fierce Determination of Flonzie Brown Wright

betty2Betty Greene, staff member at UMD and photographer for this blog: At the Council of Federated Organizations (COFO) I was greatly moved by Flonzie Brown Wright’s story. When she was refused the right to vote by a man in the courthouse, she ran for the office of County Supervisor — and won! Her fierce determination changed the voter registration process and rules. One person can truly make a difference!
