Recorded April 12, 2009.
This is the second time we had Marjorie Swann Edwin on the Shaman's Den.
A founding member of the Committee for Nonviolent Action (CNVA), a radical pacifist organization formed in 1957 to resist the US Government’s program of nuclear weapons testing. But she was active in many, many other things. At the time of this recording she was 88 years old and still going strong, as you can hear in this interview. She says in this interview that her activism began at the age of 13 when parents were removing their kids from school in protest of black kids being allowed to attend the school. Marjorie says in the interview, she didn't know anything, but she knew that wasn't right and refused to stay home from school.
