From the Outside Looking In: Marion Helland, Nine Decades of Civil Rights Service Author Diana Koppen shares the story of her aunt, Marion Helland and her lifelong commitment to social justice. In this collection of memoirs, we follow Marion as she visits a Ku Klux Klan meeting, teaches in the Freedom Schools, marches in the Meredith March, camps on Capitol Hill with the Poor People’s Campaign, and changes social policy for years to come. Breaking Free from Rigid Boxes is brought to life through nine decades of primary source documentation of human rights service from the lens of a Midwestern White woman. Thank you to the Council Bluffs Public Library Foundation for supporting this program.
