As you may know, Gwen Patton passed away a couple of days ago.
Gwen was a stalwart warrior of the Alabama Freedom Movement. She started
at the age of 16 working with the Montgomery Improvement Association
(MIA), went on to become a student activist and leader with the Tuskegee
Institute Advancement League (TIAL) a SNCC affiliate, and then continued
to work in Montgomery for many years with SCLC.
We've started an "In Memory" page for her on CRMVet at:

tributes you'd like to add to that page.
The SNCC Legacy Project (SLP) also has an "In Memoriam" page for her at:
