…to all of the individuals whose stories make this website possible. We are grateful for the time that you gave us and the personal memories that you shared. We are especially grateful for the fight that you fought, for we know that you and your fellow activists are the reasons why we can lead our lives the way that we do.
…to Reverend Susan Cartmell for letting us interview her, even if our recording equipment didn’t successfully capture all of the memories, thoughts and answers to our many questions that she graciously shared.
…to Fred Foster for serving as a gatekeeper and taking the time to put us in contact with insightful narrators.
…to Max Krochmal, currently a Ph.D. candidate in history (and soon to be professor at Texas Christian University), for guiding us throughout the semester. We couldn’t have been successful without your feedback and most importantly, your constant cheerleading.
…to our brave classmates in History 110s who didn’t drop the course after the first day, like the 25 other students enrolled in the class, for your support, and encouragement and braving the process alongside of us.
