Mary Liuzzo Lilleboe

Mary Liuzzo Lilleboe is the daughter of Viola Liuzzo, the Detroit housewife and Unitarian civil rights worker who answered Dr. King’s call to come to Selma after Bloody Sunday; Mrs. Liuzzo was murdered by the Klan while driving with an African-American man between Montgomery and Selma after the last Selma march on March 25, 1965. Mary and her brother Anthony describe the heroism and compassion of their mother, as well as the pain experienced by their family following her death and the subsequent smear campaign against her character.
