GC intrigued by civil rights activist

MILLEDGEVILLE —

Civil rights activist Joan Mulholland visited the Georgia College campus to share her personal story and experiences during the 1960s when she was determined to fight for social justice.

Faculty, staff and students and the community viewed a screening of her documentary "An Ordinary Hero: A Film and Discussion with Joan Mulholland" Thursday afternoon in the GC Arts & Sciences Auditorium.

Mulholland also answered questions from the audience and sold copies of her documentary following the screening.

Mulholland joined sit-ins in 1960 as a freshman at Duke University, the Freedom Rides and other movements pushing for equality. Her path has crossed with some of the biggest icons in the Civil Rights Movement, including Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Robert F. Kennedy and Anne Moody.
