What Else She Said

My grandmother on my father's side was an early activist. I don't think she would think of herself quite that way, but she was a community organizer. She organized young mothers. She felt very isolated as a mother and so she organized young mothers' support groups and parenting classes, decades before parenting classes became 'in.' Who knows if the information she was giving them was good at that time, but it was really nice to hear about that growing up. She also organized, when she became elderly, around having the elderly people in her neighborhood fight back against the violence that was getting more prominent in the South Bronx in the 1970s.
