This is Shirley Billy’s story. Shirley was arrested, and her child was
taken away. Why? Because she committed the crime of being a white
woman impregnated by a man of color in 1950s Baltimore. Fighting
against Maryland law to get her child back, Shirley became an
inspiration to those seeking civil rights everywhere. Her digital
story is illustrated here, through a hand-drawn animation by CADVC
summer 2013 intern, Alexandra Wine.
