In 1963, 16-year-old Janice Wesley made a decision that had a profound affect on her future. She decided to risk it all and go to jail by becoming a foot soldier in the Birmingham, Alabama Children’s Crusade to protest the racial segregation that prevailed in her city and throughout the South. 

Janice tells the story of her arrest in I Woke Up with My Mind on Freedom, and goes on to describe her role in the new South as an educator and administrator.
