Joan Trumpauer Mullholland

Born into a world of southern white privilege at a fiery juncture in American civil rights, Joan Trumpauer-Mulholland proves that privilege does not have to be what divides us but rather what can unite us. Exposed to the horrors of racism in her Indiana community at an early age, Joan decided to use her white privilege as a way to draw attention to the cause for equality and civil rights. This good deed didn’t come unpunished: as a result of Joan’s activism, she spent several months in prison, was beaten by mobs, and risked the severing of her family relationships and academic ties.
